Women’s President’s Cup Scoring/Seeding Rules

  • To encourage participation in tournaments, team members will be selected, first, on the basis of performance in Region 5 PCQ tournaments and, secondly, on the basis of performance in PCQ tournaments outside of Region 5.
  • Each team must consist of two (2) Region 5 players.
  • To qualify for consideration, a player must compete in a minimum of 3 PCQ tournaments (either in or out of region); one of these events must be a Region 5 Presidents Cup Qualifier event.
  • The top four (4) Region 5  teams with the most points in their best 3  PCQs (including out-of-Region tournaments)   will be automatically on the Region 5 President's Cup Team. The “points” will be calculated the same way they are for National Ranking where tournaments are weighted based on the level of competition.  The fifth team will be a Captain's Choice selection regardless of how many teams have met the requirements for qualification.  Also, if any of the top four (4) Region 5 teams loses a player due to injury or some other serious issue, then the Captain is free to choose another player for that particular team instead of simply dropping the healthy player off the list.
  • In the event that these criteria do not clearly indicate the appropriate players to be selected, or there is a tie, the decision shall be made by the team captain based on overall participation.
  • The Captain will be responsible for team order and points accumulated will not necessarily determine order. For example; A Captain's selection may play anywhere from 1-5.
  • Three players will also be selected by the Captain as Alternates. These alternates will be called upon to fill in for any player or team chosen for the Presidents Cup Team.
  • All other rules regarding President's Cup play are determined by the APTA.
