When viewing a Grade's Ladder, you will see the columns and statistics for the ladder that has been chosen by the organisation managing the Grade.

Ladders are ranked by one of these two columns:

  1. Total Ladder Points
  2. Ladder Points Average

Total Ladder Points

A team earns a certain number of Ladder Points based on its performance in games throughout a season. Teams are primarily ranked by the Ladder Points they earn.

Ladder Points Average

A Ladder Points Average ladder will still consider the ladder points earned by a team throughout a season, however, instead of being ranked exclusively by Ladder Points, the number of games that the team has played (excluding byes) is also considered. 

Points Per Format

PlayHQ sets default values for all game types to ensure ladders can be calculated, but associations have the option to change these values should they need to via the custom option:


2 Day Format default game outcome points:



T20 Custom Game Outcome Points

Associations can decide the points for the below T20 outcomes:


One Day Custom Game Outcome Points

Associations can decide the points for the below One Day outcomes:


Two Day Custom Game Outcome Points

Associations can decide the points for the below Two Day outcomes:


Bonus Points

Associations can also toggle on Bonus points for a grade, which creates an additional column in the Ladder.

Bonus Points + Game Outcome Points = Total Ladder Points for a team.

Associations can choose whether the bonus points applies to the Overall Ladder or just this Game Type (T20, One Day & Two Day) ladder. THis only applies to Cricket

Automatic Bonus Points will be derived based on the the runs and wickets scored by each times multipled by the number configured in the grade setting. These will automatically added to the ladder under BP (Bonus Points)

Manual Bonus points can be be added to each game if the setting is toggled on.

Once the setting is on, Manual Bonus points can be added across all PlayHQ platforms.

Club or Association Admins can enter Manual Bonus Points in the Game Details section of the Admin Portal

Coaches or Team Manager with Management Access can enter Manual Bonus Points via My Teams

Scorers can enter Manual Bonus Points prior to submitting the game:
