The ladder starts play at 6 pm on Mondays and the first 25 players to show up get to play. Sign ups begin before 6:00.
The following is a example of 16 players. The players are broken up in 4 groups (Courts). You get to play 24 games, 8 with each member of your group. The one winner of each group moves up the next week and one loser of the group moves down.
It is not a serious group as any one can join and play anytime they like. The seeding is done by JIm O'Donnell at the start of each sessio. It takes about 1 ½ hrs to complete.
It works out that the level 4 players end up playing on court one and level 3 players end up on court 4. If during the course of the season there are higher numbers than usual, e.g. 25 or more then a consideration will be made to split the group into two sessions: From 6:00 to 7:30 for level 3 and from 7:30 to 9:00 for level four.
