DOUBLES LADDER CHALLENGE

Rules and explanation

 

WHAT IS IT?

 

• An online doubles ladder where players are given an individual ranking

• This competition is completely "opt in"

- There is no obligation to take part whether a player is on the ladder or not

 

- Obviously, the players that take part in the most matches will have an advantage

• You can pair up with a different partner very time

• Open to all adult members!

 

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

• No sign up necessary, once you report a result you will automatically be added to the ladder

• Email the result to Will within 24 hours - wwtenniscoach@gmail.com

• Any men's doubles, ladies doubles or mixed doubles matches between club members counts towards the ladder 

• You can choose to play best of 3 sets or first to 9 games (with a tie-break at 8 all) - please agree on this in advance

• The ladder works on a weighted points system dependant on ranking

• Note: Participants do not need to do any calculation themselves, all they have to do is organise a game of doubles with anyone in the club and report the result (no need to read on if numbers give you a headache!)

 

 

THE RULES

• Going into each match players are ranked from 1-4 dependant on their current 

points tally and receive weighted scores relevant to this ranking

 #1 player: 20 for a win / 10 for a loss

 #2 player: 40 for a win / 20 for a loss

 #3 player: 60 for a win / 30 for a loss

 #4 player: 80 for a win / 40 for a loss

- 50 bonus points every time you play with a new partner

 

- When players are equal on points going into a match they share the highest player position

• Example: If it is the first match for all 4 players then everyone is considered to be #1 player and receive 20 points for a win or 10 points for a loss (plus a bonus of 50 points each for playing with a new partner) 

 

• Another example: If going into the match John has 100 points, Paul and 

George are on 70 points and Ringo is on 60 points then:

- John is #1 player

- Paul and George are both #2 player

- And Ringo is #4 player

- There is no #3 player in this situation
