When offered, League Play will generally be for a set period of time ie. 6 to 8 weeks, where people sign up for the full league, play in their rated groups and statistics will be kept. The Club may offer Fall, Winter or Spring league play. LadderPlay is an informal way where people come in and out (don’t have to commit to a certain period of time) and have the chance to play people of the same rating.
USAPA Definition of Ladder Play: Players play mostly with others of similar skill levels. Your ranking on a ladder is based upon your winning percentage (the ratio of points won to total points possible). Players will move up or down the ladder based upon their winning percentage.
Although there are a variety of formats, we currently use ROUND ROBIN PLAY, which according to the USAPA is a structured form of play organized by skill levels. In the time allocated to each Round Robin session you will play a fixed number of games, each with a different partner and against a different pair of opponents.
Round Robin Play & Open Play at B & G Club:
Round Robin Play will start on Monday, January 6, 2020 at the Boys & Girls Club on Fir Street. The time slot for 2.5’s and 3.0’s is 6:00 to 7:30 PM. The 3.5’s to 4.0’s will be from 7:30 to 9:00 PM. Be sure to show up on time so that you can be included in the Round Robin play.
On alternating weeks (January 13th) will be an open play week. We will alternate round robin play with open play for a couple of months (*our calendar will be updated to reflect the changes to our schedule). There will be no more Saturdays at the Boys and Girls club for a while. The added Saturdays we had just happened to be available. I have asked for any additional availability but have not heard back.
