2014 Challenge Ladder
Our Challenge Ladder concludes at the end of August.
The purpose of a 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.
There is a one-time $10 registration fee to participate in the challenge ladder. You must also have a Seger Courts Reservations membership ($35) to reserve courts at Seger. See the Frequently Asked Questions section for details about Courts Reservations memberships.
Initial registration closed at midnight on Wednesday April 30th; Competition began on May 3rd. In-season registration is now available; newly registered players are added once a week (usually the Monday or Tuesday after paying the registration fee).
If you'd like to be on the Challenge Ladder, click the 'Donate' button below to pay your $10 fee via PayPal. Then send your name, email address, phone number and NTRP self-rating to firstname.lastname@example.org . The initial order will be determined by the webmaster. Those joining in-season will be added to the bottom of the ladder.
Match Format / Guidelines:*Short warm up, no more than 5 minutes (due to the one hour reservation limit).
*"PRO SET" format. Winner is the first person to win 8 games.
MERCY RULE: If one player has won the first 5 games, then the Mercy Rule may be used if both players agree to conclude the match.
If time runs out, the person in the lead wins the match. If there is a tie, make ASAP arrangements to conclude the match.
Please send your match results to email@example.com .
Tennis balls: Each player MUST bring a new (still sealed) can of tennis balls.
