    I want to set up a local tennis ladder where each player can see the ladder online, so I don't have to constantly be emailing/calling people about the tennis ladder list. I am just going to go with simple rules like if you beat a higher ranked opponent, you go one place above the person you beat. If you lose to a higher ranked opponent, you stay where you are. And maybe you can only challenge someone 3 places higher than you (with about 12 players on the tennis ladder). And also, you must play within one week.

    1) What online tennis ladder do you use?

    2)Any other tips?

    I actually wrote my own ladder program for an online league but it is not user friendly to setup. There has to be some decent online ladder software out there for cheap.

    The Tennis Ladder. It's in Sydney, Aus. Alex Gollan from memory runs it.

    Our club has used http://www.tennisengine.com/ to support a ladder before and the website seemed to work well even though there wasn't much participation.

    I found a good site that I've been using for a couple of years now. www.Global*********work.com Before that I used TennisEngine.com, which wasn't bad. I think Global Tennis Network is a lot easier to use though.

    ----- edit ----------

    Well, that sucks. It's www. Global Tennis Network .com without the spaces between the words.

    And, as far as tips go... I've got mine set up so that anyone can challenge anyone. Global Tennis Network software has the capability of doing the things you mentioned, but I just thought it would be easier for people if it was simpler. The only edit I put in is that you can't play the same person over and over without playing anyone else.
