French Park Saturday Morning, may have to wait for tennis players. We are trying to take over this time slot.
All participants must be SLO Pickleball club members.
Participants will sign up as a team and give a phone number for each player that will be distributed to everyone on the ladder.
Each match will be best 2 of 3 games to 11 points, win by 2 points. If there is a third game, switch sides at 6.
You may only challenge the person directly above you or up to four places above you.
You can’t challenge the same team more than once every two weeks.
All challengers must contact their opponent and those challenged should try to set up a day/time that is good for both pairs, but no later than 2 weeks from the first contact.
If either player fails to arrive within fifteen (15) minutes of the scheduled start time, the challenge is either dropped or defaulted, depending on which player is late. If a match is defaulted, it should be recorded as such.
If the challenged is unable or refuses to play the match within 2 weeks, a default should be recorded, and the challenged moves down one spot and the challenger takes their place .
If the challenger wins, the challenged move down one spot. If the challenger loses, positions remain the same.
After the initial ladder is formed, newcomers can join the ladder by taking the last slot and working their way up.
If a team changes a player it is a new team and will be moved to the bottom of the ladder.
