How CTRS Points Are Calculated (2013-2018)

Points awarded through the Canadian Team Ranking System (CTRS) are calculated based on a number of factors including the type of event, the size of the field, total cash purse, and more.

1. Cashspiels
Any cash event in the world will be sanctioned as a CTRS event based on meeting the following criteria:

  • The event must have a minimum field of 15 teams for men and 12 teams for women;
  • The total cash purse per gender divided by the number of teams entered must equal a minimum factor of 500; i.e. $7500 divided by 15 = 500;
  • Double knockout, triple knockout & round robin pool formats are acceptable with the simple conditions that the Four Rock Free Guard Zone Rule must be used and games must be 8 or 10 ends in length;

All sanctioned cash events (except for the Canada Cup, Grand Slams and the Players’ Championships) will have a base CTRS point value determined by the number of Top 10 teams from the Order of Merit in the field.

A) CTRS Base Points for events with 0 or 1 team in the Order of Merit Top 10:

1st 5.000
2nd 3.500
3rd-4th 2.500
5th–8th 1.500
CTRS point may be issued for other teams not finishing in the final 8.
These events will be evaluated on an individual basis.
0.500

B) CTRS Base Points for events with 2 or 3 teams in the Order of Merit Top 10:

1st 6.000
2nd 4.500
3rd-4th 3.500
5th–8th 2.500
CTRS point may be issued for other teams not finishing in the final 8.
These events will be evaluated on an individual basis.
0.825

C) CTRS Base Points for events with 4 or 5 teams in the Order of Merit Top 10:

1st 7.000
2nd 5.000
3rd-4th 4.000
5th–8th 3.000
CTRS point may be issued for other teams not finishing in the final 8.
These events will be evaluated on an individual basis.
1.000

D) CTRS Base Points for events with 6 or more teams in the Order of Merit Top 10:

1st 8.000
2nd 5.000
3rd-4th 4.000
5th–8th 3.000
CTRS point may be issued for other teams not finishing in the final 8.
These events will be evaluated on an individual basis.
1.000


Strength of Field Multiplier

This point value will then be subject to the Strength of Field Multiplier (SFM). The SFM will be assigned to each event based on the quality of the participating teams. The SFM will be calculated using the WCT’s Order of Merit (OOM) ranking on the Tuesday prior to the event.

Here is how it will calculated:

MEN
RANK SFM
1 0.45
2 0.44
3 0.43
4 0.42
5 0.41
6 0.40
7 0.39
8 0.38
9 0.37
10 0.36
11 0.35
12 0.34
13 0.33
14 0.32
15 0.31
16 0.30
17 0.29
18 0.28
19 0.27
20 0.26
21-30 0.25
31-50 0.20
51-80 0.15
81-115 0.10
116-150 0.05
WOMEN
RANK SFM
1 0.45
2 0.44
3 0.43
4 0.42
5 0.41
6 0.40
7 0.39
8 0.38
9 0.37
10 0.36
11 0.35
12 0.34
13 0.33
14 0.32
15 0.31
16 0.30
17 0.29
18 0.28
19 0.27
20 0.26
21-30 0.25
31-40 0.20
41-60 0.15
61-80 0.10
81-100 0.05

Example: A sanctioned Cash Event has 32 men’s teams competing for a purse of $50,000. In the field of 32 teams there are:
o three teams are ranked #1, #4 & #7 for an SFM value of 1.26 (.45 + .42 + .39)
o two teams are ranked #13 & #17 for an SFM value of .62 (.33 + .29)
o four teams are ranked #31-50 for an SFM value of .80 (4 x .20)
o six teams are ranked 116-150 for an SFM value of .30 (6 x .05)
o remaining teams are unranked.

Therefore, Adding all the values of the ranked teams establishes a total SFM of 2.98. We will then take that multiplier and use it against the base CTRS value:

Final Placing Base Value SFM Final CTRS
1st 6.000 2.98 17.880
2nd 4.500 2.98 13.410
3rd–4th 3.500 2.98 10.430
5th–8th 2.500 2.98 7.450
Others 0.825 2.98 2.459

Each eligible event will begin with a base SFM value of 0.50. Two things happen here. If the cash event has a 0.50 SFM value or lower, the base CTRS values will be cut in half to 4.000; 2.500; 2.000; 1.500; and 0.500. If the event has an SFM of 0.51 or higher, the base CTRS values will be multiplied by the SFM factor to get the individual team CTRS point totals for the event. Finally, any cash event is also subject to a maximum SFM of 5.00, therefore the most CTRS points any team could earn would be 8.000 x 5.00 or 40.000 CTRS points.

Teams can only claim their best eight (8) results.
