MP Tennis Ladder
The MP Tennis Ladder is a citywide (Tampa/Hillsborough) tennis league, open to men and women of all levels. Players schedule their own matches and can play as often as they want, with a minimum of once every two weeks.
The MP Tennis ladder started in 2000, and has seen over 40,000 matches played in that time. There are two seasons a year (Mar-Aug & Sept-Feb) and there is open sign ups all season, so you can join anytime.
If you are looking for a way to meet other tennis players and play more matches, the MP Tennis Ladder is for you.
The 46th season of the MP Tennis Ladder runs September 6th – mid-January.
The MP Tennis Ladder has open sign-ups all season!
How the Ladder Works
The MP Tennis Ladder is basically a season long game of “king-of-the-hill”. Players challenge those above them for their spots, while accepting challenges from those below them. At the end of the season, the top players on each ladder will qualify for the single-elimination tournament that is seeded based on each player’s season ending position.
The best thing about the ladder is you can play as much as you want. The only minimums are you must play at least once in every two-week Bump Down period to hold your position, and at least eight matches for the season to be playoff eligible.
Some players have gotten in as many as 100 matches in a season! Most players get around 15-20 matches in the four-and -one-half month season. The MP Tennis Ladder is a great way to play more tennis.
