Men's Doubles and Ladies' Doubles
You do not need a partner to play in these leagues. Players
are organized in tiers of 4 people. We call these courts.
Your court assignment will initially be based upon your
estimated skill level, and you will move up or down to a
higher or lower court each week depending on your personal
wins and losses.
The players on a court will play 3 sets, and you will rotate
to a different partner on your court for each set thereby
having each of the other players as your partner or your
opponent during the course of the match.
The players keep track of their cumulative number of individual
wins and losses, and at the end of the three sets the totals
are recorded on a score sheet. The player winning the most
games moves up to the next higher court on the following
week. The player with the fewest wins moves down. In the
event of a tie the players can elect to spin a racket or
play a singles tiebreaker.
The grand total of individual wins and losses is tracked
throughout the season, and the player with the most wins
at the end is the winner of the league!
This is a fixed-partner league. You will play with the same
partner every game and you must arrange to have your own
The league is organized into tiers of 4 teams each (called
courts as above). Each team of two will play a series of
9 games with each of the other 3 teams on their court (this
actually takes up two physical court spaces) and keep track
of the total wins and losses for their team. The winning
team moves up to the next higher court on the following
week and the losing team moves down. The grand total of
wins/losses for each team is tracked and the team with the
most wins at the end of the season wins the league.
The mixed doubles league has become very popular and we
have a limited number of tennis courts allotted to us. The
RRTA must sometimes schedule two successive play sessions
on the same evening in order to accommodate all participants.
Substitutes for Doubles
Doubles leagues are scheduled for specific weekdays and
it may be that a player will be unavailable for the scheduled
time. It is the obligation of each doubles player to find
a substitute for his or her absence so that a good match
can be played. We take this seriously! Don't leave the other
people on your court hanging out to dry. If a doubles player
fails to show up or provide a substitute twice in any given
season, that player will not be allowed to participate in
that league next season.
We invite all members of the RRTA to sign up for our free
substitution lists on a per-league basis. You are not obligated
to play, but you may be called in the event that someone
can't be there and have a good time taking their place!
Our league rules charge a small score penalty against substitute
players. We find that this helps prevent unbalanced competition.
Co-ed Singles Ladder
The league ladder is divided into tiers consisting of 2, 3 or 4 players. The initial lineup is based upon your past performance in the ladder or your estimated skill level.
Each player in a tier is responsible for arranging a match with each of the other players in that tier at a mutually convenient time and place. You must play your matches within a 2-week time period and report the scores online (URL will be provided once you enter the league). The winner of a tier moves up to the next higher tier, the loser moves down. Real-time win and loss statistics are displayed online, as well as assignments for upcoming tiers.
The player with the best winning percentage is the winner of the league regardless of his/her tier. There is a minimum games played requirement for eligibility to win the league, and you must be actively participating at the end of the season.
