WHEEL SERVE NC TENNIS LADDER
How High Can You Climb
One of the mission's of Wheel Serve NC is to encourage competition at any skill-level and that is why we've created our own tennis ladder geared toward beginner and intermediate players, creating a pathway into more advanced USTA tournaments. Basically, if you are a player that wants to pursue competition then we want to help you prepare your skills and understanding of the rules of competition before you commit to something a bit bigger.
WHAT IS IT
The Wheel Serve Tennis Ladder is designed to encourage play and competition amongst wheelchair players. It has been designed to reward players for individual games won and foster frequent, competitive matches. It promotes fun and a pathway to tournament play. Two divisions exist depending on skill-level. The idea is to experience the feel of a tournament without the multi-day commitment or expense. This is a stepping stone for you to take your game to the next level.
WHAT ARE THE RULES
All matches consist of the best of 3, short sets, no ad scoring. First player to 4 games wins set. A 5-point tiebreak is played at 3-3 to determine set or in lieu of a third set. If the tiebreak reaches 4-4, the next point wins. Players can play up to 4 matches, either singles or doubles, per month. Each player or team is awarded one point for each game won, regardless of the outcome of the match. In a doubles match, a point is given to both players on a team. Matches can be at a Wheel Serve NC event or played independently. Results should be emailed to us within 3 days of completion of match.
