Not sure why I can post a valid link, but just google Austin Tennis Net.
Thanks for the link to that. I really like the idea of that kind of ladder. I really love the promotion/relegation method of moving people up and down and the short time frame would seem to work well. I like it because there isn't any order of the matches. You just have 2 people and need to find some time in the next 3 weeks to get the matches in which is pretty reasonable. As it got bigger I think I'd make it more of a pyramid rather than how your league does it with 100 different rungs but I'd have to see how best to make that work.

Do I see it correctly that it is just one ladder for both men and women who play against each other?
