Team Doubles 3.0 to 4.5 December Laddder is a pickleball ladder in Savannah, Georgia.
This is a 3-week ladder-style team doubles league. There will be a tier 2 on Tuesday nights with 6 teams and a tier 1... on Thursday nights with 6 teams to create the most competitive play.
The first week will be a seeding round that will consist of round-robin play of all teams against all teams with games to 15. The seeding will be made according to accumulated points for each team within their tier.
The following two weeks will be regular ladder play in which the losing team moves down and the winning team moves up. There will be 6 rounds of play to games of 11 within these 2 weeks.
The top three scoring teams via accumulated points, across both tiers, will receive cash prizes
Each team is allowed ONE substitute for ONE player, ONE time during the 3-week league. Each team is responsible for finding their substitute and reporting it to the league administrator. The administrator reserves the right to approve or deny players depending on skill level appropriateness, For example: the lowest seed team on tier 2 convinces a 5.0 player to sub in, I don't think so Tim.
The administrator also reserves the right to move teams from tier 1 to tier 2 or vice-versa depending on need and availability in order to provide the most competitive play or to get rid of an odd number of teams within each tier. (Will try my best to work around schedule availability.)
