Hello GTN Members!

We have been working on a new feature that will hopefully help you quickly see everything that is happening in your area.

Once you log in, you will now see a link to your location in the main menu bar.



From there, you will be able to see all the networks, ladders, leagues, tournaments and tennis courts, and a list of the top male and female players in your area.

You will also be able to post comments to your location. This will be one of the more interesting features since everyone in the city will be notified when a comment is made. This is a great way to meet and get to know all the tennis players near you.



Give it a try and let us know what you think.

I believe a Facebook type format would be extremely user friendly. Way easier to connect and link up on the courts. Good example of general wall post to others in your area: "anyone looking to hit today around 1 on the east side of town?". I'm thinking successful results all around.

I'm curious how the "top male players" and "top female players" rankings are calculated. In our area, it doesn't seem that accurate.

Seems like should be highest rated layers who are in perhaps the top 40% of number of matches played over the past few months or something along those lines. We have someone on our network in our area list who moved from the area a year ago so obviously hasn't been very active recently. The top male player is lower on our ladder and player rating than several others and has also played fewer matches.

No biggie, just curious.

It has now been changed to "Most Active". Much easier to quantify.

A Facebook style wall post is very intriguing. That could be perfect.

The thing I didn't understand is that apparently your list is only composed of the names of people who stated that they are open to finding tennis partners. We have many people in our network who are much more active than the people listed but they haven't listed themselves as looking for partners.

My personal suggestion would be to have the ranking for most active be for the most matches played in the past 60 days irrespective of whether they are looking for parters or not. obviously your call. Thanks as always for your work here.

Hey Ted. After reviewing the code, I can tell you that it does take ALL players into account. It shows the most active players based on all the matches they have played in the last 90 days.

It helps to also click "Tennis Partners" on your dashboard upon logging in.
