Join The Champaign-Urbana Tennis Ladder

Are you looking for tennis partners in Champaign-Urbana to play? Join the C-U Ladder today!

First organized in January of 2012, the Ladder is not only a great way to meet new players but to polish and hone your tennis skills against players with variety of skills, experience and ability. This adult league provides a pool of 20+ players for friendly, competitive tennis play. You can play as much or as little as you like. The more you play the faster you rise to the top.

It works like this: Players are listed in order like rungs on a ladder. The newest player to the ladder starts at the bottom and work their way up by winning matches. Players can only challenge someone one or more rungs above them to a match. If the challenger wins, she or he takes the spot on the ladder of the person they defeated. The loser drops one rung as do all the players below him or her.

There are no fees or membership dues. You and your opponent decide where and when you play, then report the final score to the ladder administrator. The only cost is bore by the challenger who brings a can of new balls to the match. If the match is held indoors both players split court fees.
