These are a traditional “leap frog” ladders. The challenger, if lower ranked, will take the spot of the challenged player (or
team) after winning the match. The challenged player (or team) will drop one spot. If the challenged player (or team) wins,
neither player (nor team) changes rankings. With many players and teams playing, the rankings could be quite volatile.
You must play three matches (with the same partner for doubles) on any ladder to qualify for a ranking. Play at least once a
month to avoid your ranking dropping due to inactivity.
Fill out and submit your registration form before playing any matches. We will use a tennis ladder website to enter scores
and keep track of player (and team) rankings during the tournament. You will be emailed a link to the tennis ladder website
to fill out your personal information. We will then team you with the partner you selected by ladder. All other competitors
on your ladder will be informed by email of your participation so you can start scheduling matches.
Register for free in as many of the categories of play as you would like. For example, you can play with different partners in
different ladders (for example, men’s 7.0 doubles and men’s 8.0 doubles). You can also compete with different partners on
the same ladder (for example, women’s 7.0 doubles). No need to have a partner before registering. And you can join
different ladders and/or add additional partners over the course of the tournament. Just let us know by email.
For both singles and doubles: set up your match with any other player (or team) on your ladder. Play when and where you
agree. You can play any match format you wish (for example, three full sets; or two sets with a third set tiebreaker; or an 8
game Pro Set; or a 6 game regular set; etcetera). All players must have registered for this tournament, the specific ladder,
and all must agree to the “challenge match” prior to beginning play. The winner is responsible for reporting the scores on
the tennis ladder website.
Idea: As you are playing with your regular groups, you can treat any or all of the sets you play as a “challenge match”.
Why the 4.0+ and 8.0+ categories? Currently, we have four 4.5 rated players in Green Valley. If he or she pairs with a 4.0,
they are in the 8.0+ category. Want to challenge them? A player must have at least a 3.5 rating or the team must have at
least a 7.5 combined rating. You can win on as many different ladders as you are eligible to play on.
We will announce winners after the tournament finishes. If interest is sufficient, we may have a tournament party and/or
award prizes. We will also use player and team rankings as input for seeding players and teams in the GVR Senior Games.
Players will be disqualified for playing in a lower category than his or her playing level. Tournament Directors (Brad Stillahn
and Rick Hogan) also reserve the right to disqualify a player or players for any reason.
Help Desk: Email Brad or Rick for help when you get stuck registering or are otherwise confused by the website or choices:
[email protected] or Rick at [email protected] . Good humor and patience are requirements.
