* EHL Ranking Points are used to determine the final positions in the EHL Ranking Table for the top 18 nations, and therefore the final qualifying positions for the 2009/10 EHL and Club Trophy competitions. Final positions are calculated from points gained by teams playing in the 2008/09 EHL, the 2008/09 Club Trophy, and taking into account points obtained during 2007/08 EHL and Trophy, and 2007 Club Competitions.
