Singles Ladder

The Singles Ladder is under way for the 2013 season.  If you are interested in being included, please notify  
Ron Houde, who is the new Ladder Chief.  Ron's 
 e-mail is:      
New players are always welcome (must be a FTA member)!    

Ladder Procedure:
  Players desiring to join the "Singles Ladder" should e-mail Ron Houde at:  After you are placed on the ladder, you will be e-mailed a copy of the players names and contact information.  We expect players to challenge other players on the ladder at least once every 2 weeks if not once a week.  NEW RULE TO HELP STIMULATE PLAY:   
Players may challenge any player on the Ladder. If the lower ranked player wins the match, he/she switches positions on the ladder with the defeated player.    Results of matches should be reported to Ron Houde, so that the ladder can be updated weekly.

Match Rules:  Matches will be played according to USTA guidelines.  Players will play 2 sets and if either set is tied at 6-6 they will
play a 7 point tie-breaker (must win by 2) to determine the winner of the set.  If they split sets, players will then play a 10 Point Super Tie-Breaker  to determine the winner of the match.  The first player to win 10 points wins the Super Tie-Breaker, but must win by 2 points.  The  winner then e-mails the results of the match to Ron Houde at  The match results will  be posted, and the  ladder rankings will be updated weekly on this website  based on the outcome of the past week's matches.
