The Southeast Texas Tennis Challenge Ladder is a means for ranking our players according to their level of play. Players are added to the ladder according to their current NTRP rating (2.5, 3.0, 3.5 and 4.0 etc.).
Challenge Ladder Info:
All matches must be played at the BMTC if one player is from Bmt. To avoid any conflicts with USTA
Leagues and NPTA check with the front desk at 866-2833 for court availabilty. Best play days are Wed, Fri,
Sat, and Sun.
Adults: All USTA rules will apply for all matches. Matches will be the best of 2 of 3 sets with regular
scoring, and a twelve (12) point tie breaker played at six (6) all. If a third (3rd) set is required it will be
played as a KOMAN ten (10) point tie breaker.
Juniors: All USTA rules will apply for all matches. Matches for ages 12-18 will be the same as the adults.
Ages 10 and Under will play 8 game pro set no-add scoring.

Please contact the event director if an incorrect result was reported.
Participants must make at least 1 challenge within 30 days of the last played match. Failure to do so will result in a rankings penalty that applies to everyone except for the #1 ranked person.
Participants ranked 20 and better receive a 2 ranking spot penalty and those ranked 21 and worse receive a non-activity penalty of 2 ranking spots.
If there are multiple challenge ladders and the people playing each
other are both on the other ladder(s), the result also counts
toward the other ladders.
If both participants are on an outside R2sports challenge ladder,
results from the outside ladders also count towards the ladder rankings
