Ladder Fees
    If you collect a fee to play in your ladder, your players will not be able to challenge other players or submit scores until they have paid. If you don't use a payment gateway to collect the fee, you will need to mark your players "paid" manually on the "Manage Players" page.

Matches
  • Match format details
  • Allow players to submit their scores.
  • Require players to submit the court location their match was played.
  • Request the home court of the players, and display it on the ladder.
Challenge Settings
  • Penalty for declining a challenge. If you use the Leap Frog system, 1 point equals 1 rank.
  • If a player does not accept or decline a challenge within this many days, the challenged player will automatically decline the challenge.

  • If a player does not play their accepted challenge within this amount of days, the challenge will expire, and the following will occur:

  • This is the maximum number of pending outgoing challenges a player/team can have before they cannot issue any new challenges. This includes outgoing challenges that have been accepted, but not played.
  • This is the maximum number of pending challenges a player/team can have before they cannot accept or issue any new challenges. This includes challenges that have been accepted, but not played.
  • Require an accepted challenge in order for players to submit a score.
Schedule Settings
  • Opponents - Schedule each match with specific opponents. With this, you can auto generate a schedule that will create as many unique matches as possible.
    Courts - Simply assign players to a specific court, and we will create a mini round robin on that court. Use this for rotating opponents and partners (doubles).
  • Require a scheduled match in order for players to submit a score.
Opponent Rules
  • Players may only play an opponent within this many ranks above them. Set this to 'No Limit' to not use this option. Players may only play an opponent within this many ranks below them. Set this to 'No Limit' to not use this option.
  • This option keeps your players from playing the same opponents over and over. A player will not be able to play another player if they have played them within this number of past matches. For example, if your last 2 matches were against Bob then John, and this number was set to 2, then you would not be able to play either player, since they were played within the last 2 matches. Use "Max" if you want a round robin format. This insures everyone plays everyone.
  • This option limits the amount of times a player can play another player. For example, if you only want players to play once, set this to "1".
  • Wildcards can be used by a team to play any other team regardless of the rules you set. This allows a team the chance to play a team much higher ranked than the rules typically allow.

    If you use the Leap Frog system, points are the same as a rank.
