Spring 2022 Greenlake and Beyond 3.0 to 4.5 Pickleball Ladder is a pickleball ladder in Seattle, Washington.
Hello Pickle Friends,
I’m really enjoying drop-in play, but I’ve realized that I’d also like to have a bit... more friendly competition in my life. So I’m organizing a summer doubles pickleball ladder! Find a partner and sign up! Or sign up with no partner and I'll try to let you know who is available.
Ladder teams try to work their way up the rankings throughout the summer by winning matches against other ladder teams. If you challenge a team and win, you take their spot in the rankings and they are bumped down 1 spot. You can play your matches anywhere and use any scoring you agree upon with your opponent (game to 11, 15, 21, 2 of 3, etc.). Teams can be any combo of male/female/non-binary.
I’ve created a ladder that runs from now until June 12th. If people like it, we can start another ladder in the 2nd half of the summer. My hope for the league is that it fits into people’s normal play schedule without a lot of extra time commitment.
The app will enforce the rules and I have included a copy below. I am going to create initial rankings based upon when people sign up. In addition to the rules generated by the app (see the "details" tab), I’ve added this one: "You can only be challenged by one team at any given time. This prevents outstanding challenges from accumulating against you. Simply decline any other challenges that come in while you are being challenged by another team."
I am going to create initial rankings based upon when people sign up. People are free to join whenever!
I’ve never organized a ladder before, or used this app, so bear with me as we get started. Let me know if you have any questions!
