New Avenue League Ladder

by | Sep 16, 2022 | Competitions, News, Tennis

Thirty seven players have signed up initially for the new Avenue league ladder.

Replacing the previous box leagues and set out in a rough initial order of ability, players can rise up the ladder by challenging higher ranked players (up to five places above them) and winning the match, in which case they move immediately above them in the rankings. If they lose, then both players simply stay where they are.

Players – men and women – may play as often or as little as possible depending on their circumstances, hopefully offering more flexibility to everyone.

Players who are challenged should make every effort to accept the challenge as early as they can, unless hampered by injury, work or other commitments. Players who don’t play during a three-month period will drop three places in the ladder.

The default match format will be best of three normal sets with a tie-break at 6-6. However, to make things as flexible as possible and if both players agree, matches can be two normal sets followed by a third set consisting of a long tie-break up to 10. Alternatively players may also agree a shorter set format – first to four – best of three sets should they wish.

New players can join the league at any time by contacting Phil Tusler via philtusler64@gmail.com or 07909 662491. Winning players are responsible for sending in results as soon as possible after each match.

Results will be updated on the Avenue website and on the Avenue noticeboard as regularly as possible. There may also be the possibility to include the ladder on a specific app in due course.
