-- A few Ladder Rules --
Match Locations: Matches can be played anywhere you and your opponent choose.

Who can join: Anyone who wants to play a min of 1 match per month is welcome to join. All of our ladder players are current members of the TLGTA. All skill levels are welcome. 

Match Format: 1 Pro-Set to 8 or Best of 3 Sets with 3rd Set Tiebreak

--> 8 Game Pro-Set: An 8 game pro set is first to 8 games by a margin of two games. A 12-point tie-break is usually played when the score is 8-8.

Example scores: 8-6 or 9-7 or 9-8 (with tiebreak)

--> Best of 3 sets is first to win 2 sets. Each set is first to win 6 or more games with a margin of 2 games. A tie-breaker is played if each team has won 6 games. The third set tiebreak can be played to any number of points as long as the winner wins more points than the loser.

Starting Position: Players who were active on the 2014 ladder will start this ladder at the position they held at the end of the 2014 ladder. All other players will be added as they join.

Frequency of Play: Players are asked to play a minimum of 1 match per month. The points system will ensure that more active members will climb naturally.

Match Scheduling: Players set up their own matches at their own convenience by challenging others or accepting challenges online. Challenges must be accepted or declined within 3 days, and matches must be played within 7 days of accepting a challenge.

Reporting Scores: The winner is responsible for submitting the scores online.

Opponent Rules: Players may only challenge an opponent within 5 ranks above them, but they are able to play players at any level below them.

Rank and Points System used is called Leap Frog Plus: This system is the based on the classic Leap Frog system, but awards points to both the winner and loser. This encourages players to play more matches to maintain their ladder ranking.

... A full listing of the Ladder Rules can be found on the FAQ page of the Ladder System.
