Sevenoaks LTC club ladder is run by Sportconnexions https://sportconnexions.com/en/ available on their app or web browser.
Whether you are a beginner or a competitive player, Clubladder is a fun and fast way to meet new tennis players of your level at the club. Sign up for this season (free to members) via the below link.
This is a mixed singles ladder for everyone. Playing Clubladder is easy.
1) select your play level
2) choose when you like to play
3) choose how often you like to play
At the start of each round you will receive an email with contact information about your opponent and how to plan your match. Your initial position is based on your play level. After the first round, only match results count.
When signing up, the Clubladder application offers six levels and we suggest the following guidelines:
|Top||Club upper team player|
|Good||Other team or potential Club team player|
|Above Average||Plays regularly 1-2 times per week, confident in matchplay|
|Average||Plays regularly 1-2 times per week|
|Improver||Returning to tennis but has previous experience|
|Beginner||Brand new to the game|
The default format is that you play for the usual court booking period and count the games. However, if you and your opponent prefer, you can play a 3-set match or a shorter format with a 3rd set Championship tiebreak. You switch positions if you win against someone that is ranked higher. You drop 1 spot if you cancel a match or if you skip 2 rounds in a row. You are removed from the league if you cancel your matches 2 rounds in a row and you do not respond to email. You can always register again.
A new round is started every 2 weeks. At the beginning of the round the players receive an email with information about their next match. The higher ranked player suggests a day and time to play the match. The winner registers the results of the match. Results are processed at the end of the round. You can skip rounds (eg when going on holiday) by adjusting your settings. If you are too busy or injured, you can simply skip a round.
