Competition Slots Allocation & Ranking

In the event of over-subscription of applications to PVE Continental Challenge and European Championships, the following rules will apply:

European Championships 

  • 4 slots (up to a maximum of 50% of the available) to the top 4 teams from the previous Championships
  • 1 slot for the organiser
  • The highest-placed teams in the PVE Ranking at the Closing Date of entries.

PVE reserves the right to use WPV Rankings if PVE Rankings are not available.

In addition to the above, up to 50% of top teams from the previous Championships will be seeded (but never more than 6 teams) with the remaining teams drawn by lot.

Continental Challenge 

  • 4 slots (up to a maximum of 50% of the available) to the top 4 teams from the previous Continental Cup
  • 1 slot for the organiser
  • The highest-placed teams in the ParaVolley Europe Ranking at the Closing Date of entries.

PVE reserves the right to use WPV Rankings if PVE Rankings are not available.

PVE reserves the right to allocate a maximum of two slots for non-ParaVolley Europe teams. 

The highest-placed teams from the previous Continental Challenge may be seeded, up to 50% of the number of lots, but never more than 6 teams, with the remaining teams drawn by lot. Seeding from previous events will not be used when the interval from the previous event is more than 2 years.

Ranking points 

All ParaVolley Europe zone teams competing will be awarded Ranking Points from Sub-Zonal Championships, Continental Challenge and European Championships.

For Continental Challenge, actual finishing position will be used regardless of whether teams finishing higher were non-PVE teams. Ranking Points will be awarded for competitions from January 2013 onwards and will be accrued on a 4-year rolling cycle to determine rankings.

Therefore 2013 results will be counted until 31st December 2016, at which time the span will be 2013-2017 inclusive, changing again every year.

No nation may receive Ranking Points from more than one Sub-Zonal or Continental Challenge in one calendar year. In the event that a nation competes in multiple competitions, the Ranking Points from the first event will be used. If a team is not awarded Ranking Points for events due to having competed in multiple events, the points will be adjusted upwards for the remaining teams in those events.

N.B. WPV Ranking Points are awarded (by WPV) only for European Championships. No WPV Ranking Points are available for Sub-Zonal or Continental Challenge events.
