D. Singles Ladders

See also ‘Singles Ladders’ in the menu on the left.

Members will be advised by e-mail of ladders status. Ladders will be run from June to August 31st. Members are responsible for arranging their own matches on their own time and reporting the results by e-mail to barrietennis@hotmail.com.

Balls
For each match both players supply a new can of balls – winner takes new can, loser takes used can of balls.

Challenging
You may challenge a player ranked up to 3 spots above you.
If you win your match you take the place of the person you defeated, and the defeated player moves down.

When challenging, please email or phone the person you are challenging and propose a date/time and location for the match.

If you are challenged you have the following options:
A) Accept the challenge as presented
B) Modify the challenge – move to a different date/time/location
C) Decline the challenge – if you cannot play due to illness/vacation etc.
NOTE: if you decline you will forfeit the match, but this will keep the ladder moving and you can
re-challenge at a later date or challenge another member above your new position.

The challenged player must play within 7 days of the challenge. If the challenged player already has
another match arranged the challenged player must play within 7 days of his/her already arranged match. If a challenged player cannot play within 7 days, as described, the challenger can report a default match and move up the ladder.

Matches
A pro set to 8 games – All challenge matches will be a pro set – first to 8 games win by 2,
with a seven point tiebreaker (win by 2) played if tied at 7-7.

No Shows
1. A player is considered to be a NO SHOW after 10 minutes of the agreed upon start time of play and if they have not contacted their opponent 12 hours in advance. (Please exchange cell numbers when arranging the match).
2. The executive may disqualify a member from the ladder if they continually 'no show' for matches
(general 3 strike rule).
3. The match is awarded to the player who shows up.
4. In the event of a 'no show', the winner (person who shows up), takes over the position of the opponent if the person is higher placed.

Rain/Incomplete matches
1. Both players may agree to make the set null and void if fewer than 4 games have been played.
2. An unfinished set must be resumed and completed within 7 calendar days,
3. If the set, for whatever reason, cannot be resumed and completed within 7 calendar days, the unfinished set will be considered completed and result reported.
4. If the time is running out and it looks like the match may not be completed, both players may agree to play 'no ad' games: At 40-40, the receiver has the right to choose which side to receive the serve, and the next point wins the games.
5. In the case of postponement, the previous score shall hold, the points scored will stand and the match resumed from there. For example, if the unfinished match is at 5-2 in games, 30-15 score in the 8th game, and the first service is a fault, the match will resume at 5-2, 30-15, but with 2 serves.

Disputes and disagreements
Please follow the court etiquette rules posted on the website.
Members are strongly encouraged to resolve disputes on their own (ie re-play the point in question).
Unless there are extraordinary circumstances the executive will have matches replayed and members
return to their position on the ladder prior to the challenge. Each member can submit 1(one) email and the decision of the executive will be final.

After every match
Within 24 hours of every challenge match, the winner must report the score by email to
barrietennis@hotmail.com (please copy your opponent when reporting).
PLEASE REPORT WITH 'SINGLES' IN THE SUBJECT LINE.

Good luck and have fun!
