Ladder Rules

Legal Disclaimer: Participation in any/all tennis ladders is at the players own risk. By registering on the web site you agree to the following Liability Release Statement:

I do hereby agree to indemnify and hold TennisLadder.Org and its creator, Chris Lee, from and against any and all liability for any injuries which may be incurred by me (us) arising out, or in any way connected with, my (our) participation on the ladder.

If the individual is a minor, express permission has been obtained from their parents or acting legal guardian. As such the legal guardian, has sent mailed in the following waiver form.

Players are responsible for issuing challenges to other players. Players must make every effort to accept challenges. It is both players’ responsibility to reconfirm match time and location particularly when matches are arranged more than several days in advance.

Both players will bring a new can of balls to the match. The winner of the match will receive/keep the new can while the loser keeps/receives the used can.

It will be the responsibility of the winner to report the match results. If results are not entered within 7 days of the match, they will not be accepted.

If there has been an error in reporting a match click here and let us know as soon as possible.

Match points are awarded as follows:

Challenger receives 2 points
Winner receives 20 points. If ranked 5 spots below the opponent, the winner will receive 25 points (plus challenge points if any)
Loser points are calculated on the number of games won during the match (plus challenge points if any). The maximum number of points for a losing match is 10.


By default these will be your typical 2 out of 3 sets with tie-breakers if necessary. Based on time and if both parties agree it can be shortened to an 8 or 10 game pro-set. With this format you would play one set to 8 or 10 games winning by 2 games.

Have fun and best of luck!
