DNTC Singles Ladder - Rules and Regulations
How to Enter: Please email your name and rating to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prizes: Whichever player is the TOP DOG of their division at the end of the season, will win $50 worth of DNTC credit.
Divisions: There are four ladder divisions: Open, Advanced, Intermediate and Junior.
Format: Players are arranged in a pyramid structure with the TOP DOG at the top of the pyramid. There are two players in the next
level, three in the next level after that, four in the next level after that, and so on. Players can only challenge someone who is in the same
level as them, or in the level directly above them. If they beat a player in the level above, they move up and the person they beat moves down
a level. If they lose, everything stays the same.
Challenges: Players should email players they wish to challenge. Players must accept a challenge and agree upon a time to play within 7 days. After this period, if the person challenged is unable to arrange a time to play they forfeit the match. If neither party can agree upon a time to play, nothing happens.
Email List: An email list with everyone’s contact will be sent to each participant at the start of each season. This is how to communicate with and challenge other players.
Frequency: Players can challenge and play as often as they like. However, players are only required to accept one challenge per week.
Length: The DNTC singles ladder runs 4 times per year: Winter (Dec-Feb), Spring (Mar-May), Summer (Jun-Aug) and Fall (Sep-Nov).
Matches: Matches will be whatever is agreed upon between the two players. It could be a timed one-hour match, best of 3 sets, 8 game pro set, etc. If players cannot agree on a format, the match will be a one hour timed match. If matches are tied when time is up, the player being challenged retains their spot, challengers must beat their opponent to move up.
Results: The challenger should email the results of a successful challenge to email@example.com within 24 hours of the victory.
Updates: The singles ladder will be updated on the website each Monday.
