World Championships 2024

Points, Rankings & Qualifications for world's

Road to Worlds

In 2024 the International Roundnet Federation will present the Roundnet World Championship. It will be hosted by Roundnet Great Britain at the state-of-the-art Surrey Sports Park.

For only the second time ever we will see over 30 countries come together for the biggest festival of Roundnet ever.

The objective will be to crown the Greatest Roundnet Nation. Each National Governing Body can select a national squad to represent their country on the world stage. Games won will contribute to their team score with the aim of crowning the greatest Roundnet nation!

We will be sending a full squad of men's, women's and co-ed teams and you could be part of it!

Read on to learn about how to earn points and build your resume for World's.

Player Points

When you compete in an official Roundnet Tournament you can earn points. Both you and your teammate earn the same amount of points based on the placing you achieve in the tournament.

The higher you place, the more points you'll win. Plus, the more teams in the tournament, the more points up for grabs and as of 2023 the more top 24 players in the tournament the more points are up for grabs.

Each player has their own points so you can go on to play with the same teammate next time or compete with another teammate at your next tournament.

National Rankings

To become a nationally ranked player you'll first need to become a member of the Australian Roundnet Association.

At any point in time, the sum of your highest four scores determine your total points and therefore your ranking.

Six months after you earned your points the start reducing in value on a daily basis. Two years after you earned your points the points have no value. So you need to keep competing to stay on top!

To be ranked on the Australian Roundnet National Rankings one of the three scores contributing to a player's total must have been from a tournament based in Australia.

Qualification for World's 2024

The Points, Rankings & National Selection Committee has been tasked with selecting the Australian team.

The committee will use the Australian Roundnet National Rankings and performance at recent Australian and international tournaments as part of their selection criteria.

As team members will not only represent the Australian Roundnet Association but Australia as a nation, player conduct on and off the field is also taken into consideration.

Read more below to see the timeline of invitations for player selection.

Selection Criteria:

The Committee will consider several factors when choosing the players who will receive an invitation to represent Australia. The National Rankings (below) will factor strongly into this consideration, however a place in the top 10 will not guarantee a spot on the Australian squad. Other considerations will include recent form, character of a player to represent the ARA, team pairings and player impact on the longevity of the sport within the local and national community. 

If you believe you will be in contention to receive an invitation to join the Australian team, and would seriously consider accepting such an invitation, please visit this link (men) or this link (women) to register your expression of interest.
