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!
