Introducing the Singles Ladder at Bishopstown LTC!
Back in 2011, we set up an exciting singles ladder that provides a fantastic opportunity to challenge different opponents and improve your fitness on the court. It’s a great way for new members to connect with players at their level and forge new friendships within the club.
As part of the ladder, you’ll be grouped with 4 or 5 players and have the chance to play against each of them within a designated timeframe, usually around 1 month. Matches follow regular advantage games, with the first player to reach ten games securing victory. In the event of a 9-9 tie, a tiebreak settles the score. Promotions go to those with the highest game totals, while demotions apply to those with the lowest.
Stay up-to-date with the current ladder by checking the noticeboard in the clubhouse or our Acebook page. Get ready for some thrilling matches and an enhanced tennis experience at Bishopstown LTC!
Join our Thrilling Internal Leagues on Tuesday Evenings!
During the spring and winter seasons, we organize exciting internal leagues every Tuesday evening. These graded doubles competitions span over 4 to 6 weeks, providing ample opportunities for friendly yet competitive play.
The format of matches varies based on the level and number of entries, typically featuring men’s/ladies’ doubles and mixed doubles. The tournament committee takes care of organizing partners and opponents for each week’s matches. Players earn points for games won, accumulating them throughout the league.
When entering the internal leagues, players are expected to commit to playing every week for the league’s duration. In case a player cannot attend a match, they should arrange for their own substitute.
Details of the leagues and sign-up forms will be posted on the Captain’s notice board several weeks before the league begins.
Additionally, we host special Team Competition nights where members commit to playing in a team of 4 (2 men and 2 ladies) on a selected Tuesday evening. Teams are assigned on the spot, and the matches feature men’s/ladies’ doubles and mixed doubles.
Don’t miss out on these thrilling opportunities to compete and have fun on the court!
