- You will receive points for each match you play.
- The more times you play, the more points you will earn. You may play unlimited matches each week.
- Each Sunday night, rankings are updated with a new leader board for each ladder.
- If you choose not to play, you will not receive any points, and therefore, your name will fall in ranking.
- You may contact and challenge anyone on the ladder – there are no restrictions.
- You may accept or decline any challenges.
- The challenge date is the initial point of contact, and is used for point calculation.
- If your match is rescheduled for any reason, you will keep the same challenge date.
- If you accept a proposal that has a specific time and location, you must show up whether it is confirmed by your opponent or not. Likewise, if you put out a proposal with a specific time and location, and it is accepted, you must show up for the match, or it is a forfeit.
- If you accept a proposal without a location specified, you must confirm with your opponent.
- If you change your mind about playing a match, make sure you delete that proposal, so no one accepts it. If it has been accepted, make sure to inform your opponent that you no longer want to play.
Location of Match
- You and your opponent will decide where and when the match will be played.
- If you decide to play at your own club, please let your opponent know in advance of any guest fees that may apply.
- When going to meet your opponent, remember to keep their phone number on hand in case there is a change in plans.
- You will play the best 2 out of 3 sets. Additionally, if you mutually agree before the match, a 10-point tiebreak (i.e., first to 10 points by 2) can be played in lieu of the 3rd set.
- If a 3rd set tiebreak is played, enter the sore as 1-0, NOT the actual point score in the tiebreaker.
- Both players will bring new balls to the match. The winner will take home the unopened can while the loser will take home the used balls.
Rescheduling a Match
- A match will need to be rescheduled in case of rain or darkness.
- When rescheduling, the challenger is still considered the challenger until the match is played.
- Any match interrupted by rain, darkness, or being bumped off the court should be played from the point of interruption as soon as possible. Make sure to write down where you left off so there are no disputes.
Forfeits and Retiring
- It is considered forfeit if you are more than 15 minutes late for your match. The player giving the forfeit receives no credit for the match. The player receiving the forfeit is considered to have won the match (6-0, 6-0) and receives all points. The “Default” box on the match scores screen is checked in these situations.
- Emergencies happen and cancellations will occur. Please give your opponent a minimum of 24 hours notice when cancelling.
- If you need to cancel your match, please reschedule it right away. When canceling, call your opponent (no emails).
- With any last minute cancellation (the day of the scheduled match), your opponent has the right to accept a forfeit (please offer it). If you are a “no show”, you will automatically give your opponent a forfeit.
- If you get injured during a match and cannot complete the match, your opponent will complete the score by “winning” the rest of the games. Do not use the incomplete score and do not check the “Default” box.
