In the PSA Women’s Rankings for April 2017, Egypt’s women take three spots in top five. The trio of Nour El Sherbini, Raneem El Welily, and Nouran Gohar who are currently ranked 1st, 4th and 5th respectively, made history in December 2016 when they made Egypt the first country in 20 years to hold the top three spots in the PSA Women’s World Rankings.

PSA World Rankings are calculated and published on the first day of each month with players competing in PSA World Tour tournaments earning points for their performances.

The PSA World Ranking is used for selection of entries and the determining of seeds in each PSA World Tour tournament. The total number of points a player accumulates in any 12-month period is divided by the number of tournaments played to give an average score (the minimum is currently 10 tournaments for men and 8 for women).

The average score is the factor that dictates where a player is placed in the PSA World Rankings. Until a player plays 10 tournaments (men) or 8 tournaments (women), the total points accumulation will be divided by a minimum divisor (10 for men, 8 for women).
