LADDER RULES
1.  A lower-ranked player can only challenge a higher-ranked player who is ranked a maximum of 3 places above him/her.
 
2.  If the higher-ranked player wins, there is no change to the rankings.
 
3.  If the lower-ranked player wins, the lower-ranked player takes the place of the higher-ranked player, and the loser drops down one place
 
4.  All players are allowed two “free” challenge matches where he/she can challenge a ranked player no more than 15 places ahead; i.e. Rule #1 does not apply. These two free challenges can be used at any time, once they are used there will be no more allowed as a member.
 
5.  If the unranked member loses both of those two “free” challenge matches, he/she will be placed at the bottom of the rankings, and Rule #1 will then apply to them. 
 
6.  A higher-ranked player cannot refuse a challenge from a lower-ranked player or new/unranked member. The match must be played within 1 month of the challenge being made. Discretion regarding any deviations lies with Rob Williamson and Rob Picard.
 
7. All annual club championship games count as challenges.
 
8. A challenge needs to be requested and accepted PRIOR to the game being played for the challenge to count. This is to prevent players declaring a ‘friendly’ game a challenge after the game has been played.
 
9. Challenges must be accepted within a month otherwise the challenged player can be removed from the ladder. This rule will be flexible based on certain circumstances like short term travel or injury.
 
10. You can challenge the same player as many times as you want within reason – give at least a 2 week gap between challenges.
NOTE:
We have had to make one adjustment to Rules #4-6, as follows:-
 
  –  For their first “free” challenge, the new/unranked member can only challenge any player in the bottom 10-placings on the ladder. 
  –  If they win that match, they can use their second “free” challenge match to challenge any player a further 10 places up the ladder (i.e. anyone in the bottom 20.
  –  If they win that match, they will be allowed a third and final “free” challenge match, whereby they can challenge anyone on the ladder.
 
We have had to implement this adjustment as a result of some of our new members being a tad overly optimistic and ambitious of their own abilities, and using their first “free: challenge to challenge players in the Top 5, and getting thrashed 6-0, 6-0.
 
One of our top men’s players has had this happen to him three times in the past 12 months. Whilst he’s happy to meet new members, it’s obviously frustrating that he’s had to give up his time to play a grossly inferior player.
 
 
7.  Failure on the part of the higher-ranked player to accept Rule #6 will result in the lower-ranked player receiving a walk-over. Rule #3 then applies.
 
8.  If any ranked player is unavailable to accept challenge matches for longer than one month due to serious injury or illness, he/she will drop to the bottom of the rankings, and Rule #4 will apply to them when they are fit to play again.
 
9.  Challenge matches comprise the best of three sets, with the deciding third set (if required) being a 10-point Championship tie-breaker.
 
10. After the match, the winner must notify Rob Williamson (robert.barry.williamson@gmail.com) of the result, and the change to the online ladder will be made (if required; i.e. if the lower-ranked player won).
 
11. Any issues, complaints or grievances relating to this Ladder and Challenge system must be addressed to the Club Chairperson (currently Rob Williamson) for a ruling. The Chairperson will consult with the club’s League Tennis Captains,, and their collective decision will be accepted as final.
