New Avenue League Ladder

by | Sep 12, 2022 | Competitions, News, Tennis

Following last weekend’s fantastic finals day, we invite you to enter the new Avenue singles league ladder.

Replacing the previous box leagues and set out initially in a rough 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. Play will start on Monday September 19 and continue indefinitely.

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.

Players can join or leave the ladder at any time with any new players slotted in at an appropriate step of 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.

Players who took part in the last box league have been automatically entered but anyone interested in joining can simply contact Phil Tusler via philtusler64@gmail.com or 07909 662491.

Winners are responsible for sending out results to the above as soon as possible after each match.
