WDSF WORLD RANKING COMPETITIONS: TYPES & CATEGORIES

Published

on

The structure of competitions and ranking of  DANCESPORT Athletes is very similar to that of the tennis world, ATP circuit. In the world of professional tennis there is a world ranking that takes the computation of the results of the last twelve months. The results of each championship give a series of points that are added. There are different levels of tennis championships. The first place are the big 4, the GRAND SLAM Championships, which are Open Australia, Roland Garros-Paris, Wimbledon -London and Open Usa-New York. These championships are what MORE points awarded to tennis players. In the world of the WDSF there are also the Grand Slam Championships. There are 4+1 each year and the best dance in a fifth test. In the same way they are those that give more points for the ranking and the winner of the fifth test is the winner of the Master. Each Grand Slam of DANCESPORT offers a base of 400 points for the winning couple, plus some bonuses depending on participants, etc.

Next in tennis are the OPEN 1000 Tournaments. They are called that because the winner offers 1000 points. These would correspond in the WDSF world to the WDSF INTERNATIONAL OPEN, which offer a base of 200 points for the winning couple plus bonuses.

In tennis the following ranking is the OPEN 500. In WDSF it would correspond to the OPEN WDSF that offer 100 points plus bonuses. A small difference does arise with the world of tennis in regards to the World Championships. In tennis, at the end of each season, the top 10 finishers play the Master Tournament, and whoever wins it has international recognition. In WDSF there are the WDSF Open World Championship and the WDSF World Open (which offers the winners 320 points plus bonuses).

Finally, establish the following analogy: in tennis there are 2 disciplines: single & double. Each one independent with its ranking. In WDSF there are 3 disciplines: Standard, Latin and 10 dances.
