REDEMPTION NATIONAL RANKING SYSTEM (RNRS)
What is it?
The Redemption® National Ranking System (RNRS) gives credit to the nation's best Redemption® players. Because not all players are able to make it to the National tournament the RNRS gives those players the chance to be ranked #1 in the nation without having to go to the National Tournament.
How does it work?
Each level of tournament has an allotted number of ranking points that are earned in each TYPE of play. When a player wins an official tournament, that player gains points towards the RNRS title in that TYPE. The player with the most points (ranked #1) at the end of the Redemption tournament year (the tournament year begins after the National tournament in early October and ends with the National tournament the following year) in that TYPE will be the RNRS champion.
Because some areas have many tournaments, we have limited the number of points a player can accumulate at any one level per tournament year. (Example, Jimmy plays in eight local tournaments in one tournament year and wins six of them. He receives the prizes for his winnings for all six tournaments but will only get ranking points for winning five tournaments. Jimmy has 10 points in the RNRS.)
