*challenged player won, no change to ladder.
The season will run as follows:
27th June: Start of ladder
3th Sept: End of the full ladder (last day for challenges 27th August);
Sept: First week of knockout competition (done on a seeded principle:
1v8, 2v7, 3v6, 4v5) for top eight men. These matches will be played at
times organised by players within a week, with games ideally arranged
at weekends, given the failing light at this time of year.
10th-17th Sept: Men’s & Ladies’ semi finals (ladies have a rest week the previous week).
Sat 20th Sept 2pm: Ladies' & men’s 3rd place matches & FINALS at 2pm.
(In case of bad weather this will be rearranged for later in the day or on Sunday 21st)
Sat 27th Sept will probably be the day for the club singles champs; Sun
Oct 4th: Club Doubles champs - both round-robin day tournaments open to
all club members)
2.1. A player can only
challenge up to 4 places above their current position (you should have
received an email with every player's contact details, if not please
Winning challengers take the challenged position on the ladder and the
losing player moves down one rung on the ladder (including defaults);
all players formerly positioned between the two thus also move down one
position. If a challenger loses, everyone remains where they are.
A player can only take one challenge at a time; so a player cannot
challenge or be challenged until they have completed scheduled matches.
Once they have completed scheduled matches, and not before, they can
2.3. A player must wait at least two weeks from their last match to challenge the same player again.
A challenged player must offer two reasonable times for the match
within seven days or the match will be considered a default; inability
to play or cancelled matches are considered defaults. (You can book a
court at the Meadows via 0776 677 4529 – Club sessions are not meant as
times to play ladder matches, and priority is given to social tennis –
however if a court is free please make use of it). If someone does not
respond to your challenge within seven days of you contacting them the
match is considered a default and you automatically move ahead of them.
With this in mind please give notice when you are away for a week or
more. (See 5 below)
3.1. Challengers will supply new balls for each match.
3.2. Matches will consist of the best of three tie-break sets.
The winner of the match must email the result to
firstname.lastname@example.org, if it arrives more than 72 hours late, the result won’t count.
If a player will be unavailable to play for a week or more they should email the dates they will be unable to play to
They will be moved down the ladder as many places as they are going to
be away for in weeks (up to a maximum of four positions). They can then
not be challenged until their return date. If a player doesn't do this
they will automatically default on every challenge they receive. During
the playoff stages players must be available to arrange matches in the
planned weeks and on the day of the finals; if you are not available
you will have to retire.
6. REMOVAL AND ADDITION OF PLAYERS
If you no longer want to be on the ladder please email
email@example.com. New players added after the start date will join the bottom of ladder (men below the last man; women below the last woman).
ladder is moderated by Jackson, Mike and Fiona who reserve the right to
make minor changes to the format – eg expand or reduce the size of the
play-offs if numbers have changed.
