  • It is a coed challenge ladder, open to both male and female players of all ability levels 18 years old and younger.
  • All players are allowed to challenge any player at any position on the ladder.
  • You are responsible for setting up the match time and location with the player that you would like to challenge.
  • All matches will be best two out of three sets with regular scoring. 
  • Each player should bring a new can of tennis balls.  The loser gets to keep the can of used tennis balls and the winner gets to keep the can of new tennis balls.
  • Once you have completed a match, report your scores to me and I will update the challenge ladder accordingly.
  • If you challenge someone they must accept your challenge within two weeks or they will be bumped down.
  • Example: If you challenge one spot above your own and you win then you will move up one position and they will move down one position.
  • Example: If you challenge two spots above your own  and win, then you will move up two spots and the two players that were above you will each be moved down one spot.
  •  I will place new players at what I feel is an appropriate level on the ladder.
If you know of anyone that would like to participate please have them give me a call.  The more players we have on the challenge ladder the more fun it will be for everyone involved.
