Join the 2020 Mixed Singles Ladder

Play competitive tennis at the Meadows tennis courts during Summer.  All club ladders are free to join for club members.

How to join the ladder

The club is using Global Tennis Network to run the ladders. To join, follow these steps:

Ladder start date: 15th June 2020

Ladder end date: 25th October 2020

Ladder format

Once you have joined the ladder, you can message other players on the platform. You will need to organise your matches and enter your scores on the Global Tennis Network.

We recommend players use a classic best of 3 set format, but you are free to use any other formats, such as super tie-break in the third set or Fast Four.

How rankings work

For this ladder, we are using the ELO ranking system. Every player will start with 1,500 points. You will win points for a victory, and lose points for a loss. 

The number of points you win or lose will depend on the ranking of your opponent. For example, if you’re ranked 12th and beat the 2nd ranked players, you will win a significant amount of points.

Player activity

For a ladder to be successful, its members need to play fairly regularly and be active. 

There is a point penalty for inactivity, if a player does not play at least 1 match in a period of 45 days, they will lose 25 points. If a player is inactive for 90 days, they will be removed from the ladder.

If you are unavailable to play (e.g.: injury, holidays), you can set up your unavailability on your profile, this way your idle timer will be paused and you will not lose points.
