Booking court time
- Since we now offer online booking, Friday Ladder night is no longer offered.
- Booking a ladder match is exactly like how you would book a singles regular play.
- If you book your ladder game for prime-time hour, you will use your any-time booking token.
- If you book your ladder game for non-prime time hour, you will use your non-prime time booking token.
- It is your responsibility to manage your booking tokens to make sure that you get to play all your matches or to meet the minimum matches per month.
How to Play
- Where you start will be completely random, but sorted by rating.
- Within the calendar month, you must aim to play each of the other players within your box.
- If you play less than 2 matches or default more than once in a month, you will be removed from ladder play for the remainder of the season. Your fee will not be refunded.
- All players are equally responsible for arranging matches with their opponents. Participants must respond to Ladder requests within 72 hours; failure to do so results in a loss by default. Declining to play an opponent will also be recorded as a default.
- Based on the outcome of a match, points are awarded to each player, which are used to move players up and down the Ladder on a monthly basis although the addition of new players may affect your placement.
- 4 points is awarded for a win, 2 points for a tie, 1 point for a loss, and 0 points for a default loss (no-show).
- Matches are booked only for the current month. Opponents change from month to month as boxes are re-calibrated based on points accumulated.
- In event of a tie of total points between players in the same box, the organizer will determine the placement of players based on a number of factors, including if points awarded are default points versus earned from games played, or the outcome of the previous match between the two players.
