Men's Doubles Ladder:

​The Men’s ladder is encouraging men of all levels to participate.  The schedule will consist of three, three week sessions beginning in November and ending in mid January. It is hoped that this format will prepare individuals to pick partners for the Men’s Championship Doubles which will replace the Ladder in Mid January.  Interested players can register at the Charlotte Courts.


​Times and Location:

Monday Afternoon 2-6, Can Am Courts. Three, Three week sessions will be run during the months of November, December, and January. See schedule for dates.​


Set Up:

  • The ladder runs for 3 weeks.

  • A set consists of 11 points or total score after 1 hour, whichever comes first.

  • The one hour includes warm up time.

  • The number of games won during the 1 hour period is your score.

  • Winners must record the scores each week on the posted schedule at Can Am Courts.

  • Points are accumulated per player over the 3 week session.


  • Players are drawn up in groups of four, according to approximate skill levels.

  • Each foursome rotates and will play once with each player over the three weeks.

  • One player each week brings a new set of balls for play.

  • After three weeks, the lowest scoring player will move down a group (except in the bottom group) and the highest scoring player will move up a group (except in the top section).

  • Adjustments to the ladder will be made to add newly registered players and delete players that have elected not to play for the next session, while maintaining four person groups of generally equal skill levels.

  • A new ladder is started every 3 weeks.

General Rules:

  • All players must be members of the Tennis Club.

  • There will be a 3 point penalty for using a sub.

  • If a player fails to show up the other three players get 11 points each.

  • A sign up list will be posted every three weeks for players to indicate if they are playing next session and for new players to sign up.

  • If a participant has a scheduling conflict and willing opponents or if the match is rained out, it may be played at another time.

  • Note: all three matches must be played by the Sunday following the end of the session to enable scheduling of upcoming matches.
