The ladder is back! There are still a couple of days to play the outstanding matches – the new schedule will be published on Mon 1st October.
Please read the News:
1) New rule (time saving for the organiser): if your result box is not filled at the end of the month either with score or walkover, unfortunately I’ll have to automatically remove you from the tournament
2) New doubles ladder: new doubles ladder potentially starting Oct 1st. 2 matches per month.
3) I’ve been getting good feedback for this tournament: nice to hear but if you have any issues please don’t hesitate to let me know. 🙂
4) New suggestion: if you can’t play for only 1 month, give walkovers but stay in the ladder. If you can’t play for longer, please opt out – you’ll get your position back (more or less) when you want to join again.
5) Now it’s the time for you to let me know if you want to drop out of the ladder.
