Test 2021 CHTC Ladder (discontinued) is a tennis ladder in Ottawa, Ontario.
The club is moving the online events to Universal Tennis. The ladder equivalent is, for the time being, Click and Play... on the UT website. The reasons are explained on the club website, on the ACTIVITIES > Universal Tennis page.
The challenger is responsible for booking the court for your match. Each player brings a can of new balls, and serves with his/her balls.
To ladder match format is a pro set. The first player to reach 8 games by a difference of 2 games wins the match. A tie breaker must be played at 6 all (or at 7 all if time permits and both players agree). The score to be entered if a tie breaker was played is 8-7. We'll review the rules as the season progresses.
If a player is late for a match, there is a grace period of 15 minutes after the start time agreed by both players. The player who doesn't show up after 15 minutes loses the match by forfeit. As a courtesy, the player who is late should inform their opponent that they will be late or unable to show up.
At the beginning of each season, you have 1 wild card that you can use to challenge anyone on the ladder. Use them carefully because a challenge can be declined and you lose your wild card. It is not possible to give new wild cards.
