There are two ladder options at Green Belt: the Intermediate Ladder and the Advanced Ladder.
You can see the ladder standings on the bulletin board as you enter the club.
Official Ladder Rules
- New players are added to the bottom of the intermediate or advanced ladder depending on which ladder they requested to join.
- You can challenge any player who is currently 1, 2, 3, or 4 rungs above you on the ladder. The current standings are visible on the bulletin board as you enter the club. The standings are also emailed ladder-ites the first week of every month. Players’ email addresses are on these listings. Email someone to challenge them to a ladder match.
- If you beat the person you challenged, you swap places. Go to the bulletin board and move your name up to where your opponent’s was, and place their name down where you were. If you lose your match, leave the bulletin board as it was. Better luck next time!
- If you make it to the top of the intermediate ladder, you can either challenge the player at the bottom of the advanced ladder, or stay where you are (ranked #1 in the intermediate ladder!) and await challenges from those below you.
- Matches can be whatever you choose: anything from a quick one-point shootout to a grueling best 3 out of 5 sets. Many people opt for a “pro set,” which is first player to win 8 games, but you must win by 2 games. A pro set can generally be won in a standard 60- or 90-minute booking.
- Standings will be announced on the first of each month, noting the most improved players and the leaders being congratulated with silent nods of approval.
