General FAQ

What is a challenge ladder?

A challenge ladder is a structure used to rank tennis players according to their match results. As members of the ladder play each other, their relative positions are adjusted to reflect the results of their play.

How does the challenge ladder scoring work?

Our scoring system rewards competitive playing. Each match you play is worth 10 points. A straight-set (2-set) win nets the winner all 10 points. A 3-set win nets the winner 7 points and the loser 3 points.

How can I determine my skill level?

To help guide you through this process, we use the National Tennis Rating Program (NTRP) for determining levels of competition for our ladders.

How come there is not a ladder for my level?

As Top10 Challenge Ladder continues to grow in your area, new ladders will be created to accommodate each specific playing level.

Can I help establish a Top10 ladder in my city?

We are always looking to expand our reach. If you are interested in bringing Top10 Challenge Ladder to your town, please let us know through the Contact Form.
