Doubles Ladder.

The Doubles Ladder is for those members looking for doubles play with a little more flexibility than the Singles Ladder. 

The better you play, the higher on the Ladder you go. 

How high can you and your partner climb?!

How to Play

*Rules of the ladder may change as we collect player feedback and identify improvements.

Match Rules

Length: Each match is a 60-minute pro-set which is first to win 8 games, by a margin of 2 (e.g. 8 – 6). If the match is tied at 8 – 8, a 7-point tiebreaker is played to a two-point advantage; e.g.  9 – 8 ( 13 – 11).  

Warm-up: Keep your warm up time between 5 – 10 minutes.


Serves: Each player gets first in, to a maximum of 5 attempts, for their first 2 service points.

Deuces: 1 deuce only. The next deuce is sudden death with the receiver choosing which side to receive the serve. 


What happens if my opponent doesn’t show up because he/she thought the weather didn’t look favourable or the courts were too wet for play?

If weather is ever in question, both players should call the on-duty Court Manager to get a ruling on if the courts are suitable for play. If a player did not check with the Court Manager and chose not to show up for the match, a default win will be awarded to the player left waiting.

What happens if it begins to rain at the beginning/during match?

Check with the staff to determine if the courts are suitable for play. If they are not, and a minimum of 5 games total have been played then the leading player is considered the winner. If less than 5 games, then agree to the current score, re-book to a mutually agreeable time, and continue the match where you left off.

If the match cannot be completed within 7 days the challenge will expire and the match will be cancelled. In order to play the match, the challenge will have to be issued again though changes in ranking may not make it possible to do so.

What happens if we run out of time?

Whichever player is leading, is the winner. In case of a tie, play a sudden death point.
