If playing a challenge match at other times- each player brings a can of balls and the winner keeps the new can. Standard match format is one set to 6, but you plan play longer formats (2 out of 3 sets) if both players agree before the match starts.

10. Any of the following match formats can be used:

Single Set: A single set is first to win 6 or more games with a margin of 2 games. A tie-breaker is played if each team has won 6 games.

Example scores: 6-3 or 7-6

Anything Goes: This will allow any score to be submitted without any validation. Not always recommended.

Example scores: 5-3, 8-2 or 21-20, 21-18

11. The following system will be used to compute a player's position on the ladder.

Leap Frog: This is the most basic and simplest ranking system. When a lower ranked player beats a higher ranked player, the lower ranked player "leap frogs" over the higher ranked player, pushing them and each player initially between them down one spot. If the higher ranked player wins, nothing happens.

12. After the match, the winner will submit the score.

13. All ladder members should maintain current contact information. If you change phone numbers or e-mail addresses, you must update your profile so other member can contact you and you will receive email notifications.
