A challenge ladder is a mechanism for ranking tennis players according to their skill levels. As members of the ladder play each other, their relative positions are adjusted to reflect the results of their play.
The purpose of a tennis challenge ladder is to allow all tennis players, from the beginning novice to the serious, experienced player, to meet and play other tennis enthusiasts at their own skill levels. Whether you play only occasionally, "just for fun," or prefer to compete several times a week, you can meet others at your level. You will also have the opportunity to improve your play by challenging others who are slightly more advanced.
Singles = 8 Game Pro Set
Doubles = 2 sets + 10 point tie breaker (if needed)
- Players may be added to the ladder at any time. They will start at the bottom and work their way up
- Players may challenge up or down four spots
- Players must accept valid challenges from other players, or accept a loss by default.
- A match should be played within ten days of the initial challenge
- Players are not required to accept more than one challenge per week.
- Players are not required to accept a challenge from another player they have defeated within the past two weeks.
