Saturday Social Ranking Explanation:
1. Each game a player wins in a set, playing either singles or as part of a doubles pair, will add towards a total of ranking points (for an onwards rolling maximum span of 52 weeks/1 year, similar to ATP World Rankings) which will determine their social ranking. In this way performance as well as regular attendance will impact the rankings. At the end of June each social ranking awards will be given according to the social ranking points after the last Saturday in June.
2. Should a new member join or an existing member start playing social for the first time, they will be allocated starting points (SP), which will be 10 points less than the lowest ranked player of their gender. In this way they don't need to start at 0 and not be able to move up in the rankings swiftly. Starting points will fall away after a 12-month period have passed or after a successful challenge match.
3. Challenge Rules:
- Any member can only challenge any other member once in 12 months at any time (except during March to June) to get a boost up the rankings should they wish.
- Should they win they will receive challenge points (CP) to reach a total ranking points of 10 more than the person they challenged.
- These challenge points are basically the other player's points that the challenger wins/copies, which means they will also be lost and replaced systematically as the 12-month points period moves forward.
- There will be no change in the ranking points of the player who loses a challenge match.
- Should a member wish to challenge another member they must please contact the chairman to help arrange a date for the challenge match. The challenger must supply new balls for the challenge match.
- One particular member may not be challenged more than ONCE in 12 months and/or play more than one challenge match in a month's time.
- A (new) member needs to play a minimum of 12 social tennis sets before he/she can challenge another member.
A member has the following options when someone wants to challenge them:
1. If you don't want to accept a challenge match, for whatever reason, you can forfeit the match and give a walkover win to the challenger. This will also count as your one challenge match in 12 months.
2. If you want to accept the challenge you have the option of choosing between a singles or a doubles challenge match. As our social tennis rankings are based on about 95% doubles matches, it's only fair that a member can defend their points by playing a doubles match should they choose to.
A: Should you choose to play a doubles challenge match when someone challenges you, the challenger player must then choose/nominate two neutral players who are willing and able to participate in the challenge match. The doubles challenge match will then consist of maximum two normal tennis sets (with or without our special "no advantage" and tiebreak at 5-5 rules - the challenged player decides) where the two neutral players swop/alternate teams after the first set.
To win the doubles challenge match the challenger player needs to win BOTH sets, playing with and against both neutral players. Should the first set be lost by the challenger player there is no need to play another set, except if all agree to continue playing merely for enjoyment.
B: Should you choose to play a singles match when someone challenges you, you have the option of choosing between playing a normal best out of 3 set tennis match (with or without our special "no advantage" and tiebreak at 5-5 rules) with the 3rd set (if required) a 10-point tiebreak, OR...
You can choose our 2015 club championship shorter match format of playing best out of 3 ten-point tiebreaks, for those who don't consider themselves physically fit enough to play the longer format :-)
After considering all the challenge options etc. above the club can also give immunity against challenges to senior members older than 60 and scholar members younger than 11, should such members specifically ask for immunity for whatever reason.
