At each event, Grand Prix points are awarded based on participation and results. For tournaments, 50 points to the winner, 40 points to the runner-up, 30 points to the consolation winner, 20 points for winning at least one match, 10 points for showing up. For non-tourney events (Tennis Day & Interclub), 20 points for showing up and an additional 10 if win.
At the end of the season, MVTC holds an invitational tournament in November for the top Grand Prix point-getters. Any player collecting at least 60 points by the end of October (not counting ladder) is eligible to play in the November MVTC Grand Prix tournament.
Furthermore, The MVTC Ladder will reward points based on standing: 50 for 1st place, 40 for 2nd, 30 for 3rd, 20 for 4th, and 10 for everyone else on the ladder. This will count cumulative for every type of ladder. Sign up for more ladders, get more points.
Note: Current standings are posted on the website under Race to the Grand Prix.
At the end of the calendar 2017 year, final points will be tallied. The top male and female each win $50 and will have their name inscribed in the trophy case at Cuesta Park and in MVTC history FOREVER!!!
