The TLGTA ladder is back! 

The winner of the ladder will receive a trophy at our AGM/Banquet and a free entry to a 2020 TLGTA Singles Tournament.   

Free for current TLGTA Members 

Number of Spots
50 Maximum

May 2 to October 2, 2019 

Anywhere you and your opponent agree to play.  

The ladder will be run using the Elo Rating system.  

Each player will start with 1500 points, which will increase with each win and decrease with each loss. The amount of points gained or lost from a match is dependent on the points of the opponent played. For example, if a 2000 point player beats a 1000 point player, very little change will occur to either one's rating. However, if a 2000 point player loses to a 1000 point player, both players' ratings will change drastically. A player's points will also change drastically during the first few matches recorded. 

Once you are on the ladder, you can challenge only players ranked 15 spots above or below your ranking.  You have 7 days to accept a challenge.  After 7 days, the challenge is automatically declined.  For each challenge you decline, you lose 50 points.  

Everyone on the ladder must play at least once every 30 days or you will lose 50 points.  

After a challenge has been accepted, you have 21 days to play the match.  

Forfeited matches will count as a loss and effect your points as well.  

You can play the same opponent no more than twice in the season.

The winner must submit the score.    

Double Dipping is allowed.  Meaning if you are playing someone on the ladder in another forum (TLGTA club tournament, GLTA tournament, OTA, Intercounty, etc.) and before playing, you both agree to count it for the TLGTA ladder, you may do so.  It must be a singles match.  

Approved Match Formats

  • Regular best 2 out of 3 sets
  • Regular match format for first 2 sets, 3rd set played as a tiebreaker
  • 8-Game Pro Set
