Summer Challenge Ladder - Tennis4All Boston

2018 Summer Challenge Ladder


The Summer Singles Challenge Ladder runs from June to October each year and is open to all current Tennis4All members. The cost to participate in the Summer Challenge Ladder is $10. This is a great opportunity to challenge players at various levels and to schedule matches at times and locations most convenient for you and your opponent.


Initial standings will be determined by the challenge ladder director and posted on the Web site. The initial ranking of players on the ladder is based on player ratings and past performance in leagues. Players may join the ladder at any time during this time. Once the ladder begins, new players may be added in the 11, 21, 31, etc. positions, whichever is the most appropriate point of entry for the new player's level of play.

Awarding of points

Players shall be awarded the following points:

  • 1 point for accepting a challenge
  • 2 points for issuing a challenge
  • 3 points for winning a match
  • 1 point each for a tie
  • 2 points for a default win


This year prizes will be awarded in the following categories:

  1. The top three (3) players with the most points at the end of the challenge ladder
  2. The player who moves the greatest number of places up the ladder from the beginning of the Challenge (June 21, 2018) to the end of the Challenge (October 8, 2018)
  3. A "congeniality" prize will be awarded based upon the votes cast by the players in the Challenge Ladder


All participants must issue a challenge at least once a month and play a minimum of two matches each month. Players, who are not on a leave of absence, that fail to play the minimum matches will be removed from the ladder.
