If you are joining the ladder for the first time, you are added to the bottom. You can challenge players up to three spots above you. By accepting a challenge, you agree to play your opponent within seven days of the acceptance. If you deny the challenge, the player who requested the challenge will be awarded your spot.
The Challenger must provide balls and reserve a court in advance by calling the front desk at 757-221-7378. Players may use the balls at MNTC, if played at MNTC. Junior members, there is no additional court fee; non-member court fee is $25 with a maximum of four times per year. Matches may also be played at other courts outside of MNTC.
The winner is responsible for emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the score and date of the match. If you win your challenge match, you will rise above that player on the ladder. If you lose you cannot re-challenge the same player for one week unless both parties agree to play before seven days.
