2023 Challenge Ladder - competition begins Saturday June 3rd, 2023
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 to reserve courts at Seger. See the bottom of this page for info about memberships.
