Ladders

The OTLBC ladders are an excellent way for members of all levels to meet other players of similar ability and enjoy some friendly competition. Players are grouped in boxes, each with about five players of similar playing ability, and they have three weeks to play each of the others in their box. Then, depending on how those games go, players move up, down, or stay put for the next round. There are boxes for every level from beginner to expert, so everyone can find their level. They are especially helpful to new members.

There OTLBC has two ladders: Men’s Singles and Women’s Singles. Read More

Round Robins and Leagues

Free for Members

Round Robins and House Leagues provide opportunities to play organized tennis all season long. 

  • Round Robins operate on a weekly sign-up basis and are open to players of all levels. Every half hour or so, players switch around, so by the end of play, everyone has had a chance to pit themselves against several different competitors. The exact format depends on the organizer, but round robins are really a good way to meet other member or get a game if you don’t have a partner or know other players. 
  • Leagues require tryouts. All tryouts take place in the first two weeks of the regular scheduled league time. Regular participation in a league requires a commitment to play most weeks; however, players who cannot make that commitment can also play as spares. Please email frontdesk@otlbc.com if you would like your name added to the spares list.
