 2019 Challenge Ladder

This year's ladder is invitation-only, full and underway.

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.   

You must also have a Seger Courts Reservations membership ($40) to reserve courts at Seger. You have to pay for that separately, in person, at the rec center (it is not our fee or system). 


*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.
*"NO-AD" scoring.

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 .

Tennis balls: Each player MUST bring a new (still sealed) can of tennis balls.
