Our Junior Challenge Ladder program is designed to encourage healthy, fun competition and match play practice among players enrolled in our programs.
This internal ladder/ranking system is for match play ready players enrolled in our programs. The ladder is designed for players currently competing in sanctioned tournaments or with ambition to play sanctioned tournaments and develop UTR/WTN ratings. Players competing in Junior Team Tennis and/or playing 10 and under junior circuit tournaments who have not had a chance to play in sanctioned tournaments are encouraged to participate. Challenge matches played between players on the ladder affect ladder position. Players/parents are responsible for determining match time and court locations.
Any match completed between these players must be reported to and recorded by the Ladder Coordinator (email@example.com). Matches must be completed and must be at least a 6 game set. If a player challenges and defeats a player above them on the ladder, that player is moved directly above the player he/she defeated and the loser moves down one spot, as well as all players who were ranked between the two players.
