- Joshua Creek Tennis Singles Ladder – 2012
- Administrators: Amr Shagara and Dave Fairfax
- The ladder will use a modified leap-frog format – see example below. There are two boxes,
- the Ranking Box (players ranked) and the Challenge Box (players unranked)
- Ranked players can challenge anyone up to 7 spots above them or accept challenges from anyone 7 spots below them
- Challenge box players can challenge any ranked player
- 1. Roger Fernando
- 2. Novak Milos
- 3. Andy Bernard
- 4. Rafael Ivan
- 5. David Robin
- 6. Tomas
- 7. Jo-Wilfried
- 8. Juan-Martin
- 9. Janko
- 10. Juan
- 11. John
- 1- Fernando
- 2- Milos
- 3- Bernard
- 4- Ivan
- 5- Robin
- John can challenge everyone above him except Novak, Andy and Roger (because they are more than 7 spots above him). If he challenges and beats Rafael then he claims the #4 ranking, Rafael becomes #5 and everyone else below that moves down one spot.
- From the challenge box, Milos can challenge anyone in the ranking box. If he challenges
- and beats Roger he takes over the #1 spot (and everyone else moves down one spot) but if he loses he remains in the challenge box.
- Players that wish to join the ladder should email the ladder administrators at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com and include their full name, email and phone contact info.
- New players are welcome to join the ladder at anytime during the season.
- Players that join the ladder before the ladder start date will be placed in the ranking box and ranked based on the following: Position and results from previous years ladders self-rating (e.g. 4.5)
- Players joining the ladder after the start date will be placed in the Challenge Box.
- Players in the Ranking Box can challenge up to 7 spots above. If you win, you claim that rank and everyone below moves down one spot (including the loser of the match). If you lose you stay at the same rank as before the match.
- Players in the Challenge Box can challenge anyone in the Ranking Box. If you win, you claim that rank and everyone in the box moves down one spot. If you lose, you remain in the challenge box (players in challenge box can only gain entry into the ranking box by beating someone who is ranked. In the case of losing , to challenge again in the ladder Ranking you have to challenge a lower ranking only.
- Once you play someone in either box you cannot play them again for one month.
- If you are in the Ranking Box but have no activity for a one-month period, you will be moved to the Challenge Box.
- For a ladder match both players should bring a new can of tennis balls. The winner takes the unopened can and the loser keeps the used can. Good quality balls such as Wilson US Open/Dunlop Grand Prix or balls of equal value should be used.
- It is the responsibility of the winner to input the score onto the “gametime” challenge ladder page of the club website http://gametime.i2.ca/jct/ladder_view.php?sp=sport1
- Make sure to use the bottom option so as to record the set score (e.g. 8-5)
- Do not record the match as a 1-0 victory
- A ladder match will be an 8 game pro-set with tiebreakers played at 7-7.
- If your court time is up before the completion of the pro-set then the winner will be the player who is leading at that time provided 8 total games have been played. If less than 8 games have been played and one player is leading by more than 3 games it will count as a win. (e.g. 4-0,5-1, or 6-1). If this is not the case then the match will not count as an official result. Ties will not count.
- If the ladder administrators receives complaints from three different participants that you are (1) not responding to phone calls/e-mails or (2) unwilling to play, they reserve the right to remove you from the program with immediate effect
