In 2010, a new National Racquetball Grand Prix Circuit was established with the support of Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania and incorporates both singles and doubles events, with grades for all standards of racquetball players.

The player with the highest number of points (points allocation listed below) in their grade at the completion of the circuit events (provided they have played at least 50% of the available tournaments in their grade and is a registered member of their state squash association) is recognised as that year's National Racquetball Grand Prix Circuit Champion for that particular grade. Winners are presented with a trophy at the following year's Australian Open Racquetball event.

Tournament Rankings and Points

All Grand Prix Circuit events are played under the Victorian Racquetball Tournament Guidelines and points are awarded for players' finishing position in each event. A maximum of 7,500 points will be awarded for each singles and doubles event.

For doubles events, points will be split equally between the pairings, depending upon their finishing order. E. G. The winning pair in each event will receive a total of 1200 points, with each player being awarded 600 points. 

PLEASE NOTE The rankings shown cover a period of 12 months to reflect the seedings used for each event. As the year progresses each 2014 event points will be replaced by their 2015 equivalent. 

The rankings are the critical factor in deciding the seedings for each event.
