The last time the club tried something like this it never took off.
Don't do a leap frog system. Do a points system where you get a point for every set won and a point for a win. It encourages volume of matches instead of just rewarding the winners.
I've found that the leap frog, while simple, tends to result in a lot of folks not taking challenges. Be it ego, lack o time, whatever. Some guys will just duck the challenge all the time.
