Current Season Schedule & Scores
New! MCTA Men's Ladder League. Join a new, innovative, and convenient MCTA league with all matches scheduled for the same day, time, and location. Play with different partners in doubles matches, keep individual scores, and advance on a ladder based on your personal scores. No prior league experience, partner, or team captain necessary, and you do not need to have a USTA rating or be a USTA or Bethesda Club member to join the League.
Schedule. Each player will play 4 times and have 2 byes.The schedule for the season will be available after registration closes and before the first match. Players will have the opportunity after registration closes to select specific bye dates, if needed.
Move Up and Down 3 Courts. The doubles league will be run on three courts and the object will be during the course of the season to move up from lower to higher courts. Play will become more challenging as players climb higher.
Ladder. To begin, each player's spot on the ladder will be randomly drawn. After that, a player's spot on the ladder will be adjusted up or down after each week's play. However, if a player has a bye, his ladder spot will be frozen until he plays again, and the other players will move up or slide down the ladder around his spot. Each week, the players who are scheduled to play will be assigned to Courts 1, 2, and 3 based on their current positions on the ladder.
Match Play & Ladder Champion. At each match, four players will be scheduled to play three rounds on one court. During the three rounds of play, each player will play 8 games with each of the other three players on the court. Score will be kept of the number of games each player wins in each round, and the total score at the end of the match will determine each player's future spot on the ladder. A trophy will be awarded to the Ladder Champion at the end of the season.
Teams & Team Championship. Every player will also be assigned to one of two teams. Regardless whether a player moves up or down on the ladder, every game won will be posted to the player's team, and will count toward winning the team championship.
Management. MCTA has partnered with Ann and Bev of Tennis WinWin, who have had considerable experience with this league format, to manage the league. They will be in charge of the schedule, ladder, scoring, and all the other league details.
League Size & Cost. The League is limited to 18 players. The cost is $132/player, prepaid online through MCTA. After registration closes, players will be requested to provide availability dates (for any needed byes) and the schedule will be sent out the week before the first match.
