  *     WCTA SINGLES LADDER RULES

  • Ladder will be open to all members of the WCTA, regardless of age, gender or NTRP rating.
  • Players will be listed/numbered in single file from top to bottom [new players will be added to the bottom, if their NTRP rating is a 4.0 or better then they may be inserted higher depending on singles experience, but must play down first].
  • Contact between players should be made via phone text/call, all players have their phone #'s displayed by their name.
  • In order to move up the ladder, a player must have won his/her last match.
  • When a player defeats the player above, he/she will be placed above the defeated player and the winner regains the right to play up again. 
  • When a player loses a match, he/she must play down (against the person below) and win before he/she can play up again to advance.  Exception: If the losing player becomes the last active player on the ladder then they will challenge up.
  • The challenging(lower-ranked) player is responsible for making initial contact to the player above and furnishing a new can of tennis balls for their match.  The winner is responsible for reporting the outcome of the match to the ladder director.  The higher ranked player can always reach out first too instead of waiting, the goal is to keep the play going so the sooner the communication starts, the better!
  • All matches will be 2 out of 3 sets, using regular scoring.  If the two players agree, a third set tie-breaker may be played in place of a full third set, but this needs be agreed upon before the match begins.
  • The current ladder will be maintained on this page of the WCTA web site http://www.wimberleytennis.org/ that players can watch and see when there is someone above them available to challenge, so no need to wait on a email announcing matches.  This link will be updated frequently and has a time stamp at the top, so keep an eye out for changes around you.
  • Players' names will be color-coded according to their status:
    • Name in GREEN means player is playing up.
    • Name in BLUE means player must play down.
    • Name in RED means player is temporarily out of competition and may be jumped.
    • Name in BLACK means you are the current king/queen of the ladder, congrats!

  • Players should be ready to play about once a week depending on availability of opponents.
  • Any player who will be out for a week or more should notify the ladder director and his/her position will be placed on hold, allowing other players to play around him/her.  His/her name will be colored RED until he/she is available to play.  A player whose position on the ladder is on hold will be moved down the ladder only when the player below him/her challenges and defeats the player above the on-hold position.
  • When challenged, a player must accept the challenge and work out a time and place to play within the following week, or put him/herself on hold by contacting the ladder director via email at wsggill@gmail.com or text (512)801-4417.  This will enable the challenging player to play around the on-hold player and (potentially) move up the ladder. 
  • When a player, after having lost his/her last match, challenges and plays a player above him/her on the ladder, the results of that match will not effect either players ranking on the ladder.  He/she must play down and win before challenging up again to advance.  So these will basically be considered "fun/practice" matches to work on your game. 
  • If two players are ranked next to each other in green and are both waiting for above matches, then the lower ranked player may challenge the higher ranked player.  The challenge does not have to be accepted, but if it is then the match counts and the standard ladder rules apply.  Winner will stay green and possibly move up one position, loser will turn blue and possibly drop one position.  This only applies to active players right next to each other in ladder rank.
  • If you schedule a match during a WCTA league play time(Tues/Thurs pm, Sat am) at the WISD courts, please be considerate of court availability and postpone/reschedule if all of the courts are needed for doubles play.  Just jump in and play some doubles with your fellow WCTA members!
