This is MegaPro letting you know that the Fall Challenge Ladder will begin Monday. As in past ladders there will be four different levels of play which are labeled: AA, A, B, & C.
Every two weeks players will receive two new match assignments. Once new matches are assigned, the ladder participants should email one another to set up a match time. Courtesy is appreciated. If you do not make an effort to contact your opponent and an excessive amount of time has elapsed, I will cyber-shake my fist at you and ask you to please respect each other's time.
Both players will bring a can of balls to the match. The winner takes the unopened can. So for those looking for a little more motivation, you are playing for a can of balls every time out. That's like $3. Woo-Hoo!
Each match will be at least two sets (unless an injury or other circumstance prevents a finish). If players split sets a 10-point tiebreak (first to ten, win by two) can be used to determine the winner. Players can elect to play out a 3rd set in lieu of a tiebreaker, but all 3rd sets will be recorded 1-0 to the winner.
After the match, players should record the score on the ladder website: www.chapelhilltennisclub.com/ladder
Players can challenge each other outside of the bi-weekly challenge assignments. Please send me the dates and scores of these challenges.
(FYI Players cannot record matches against the same opponent more than 4 times in a season.)
Match Winner receives 20 points
The Runner-Up gets 3 points (+ the number of games won)
Win by Default is 12 points
If you default a match you receive a -3 point deduction.
