Challenge Matches is how you determine your overall rank on the tennis team. A challenge match will be an 8 game pro-set with ad. A middle school challenge match will consist of one set to 6 with no ad scoring. Any player may challenge the teammate ranked directly above them on the ladder. The challenged player must accept unless they are hurt or there is a time constraint for some reason. As long as a player wins a challenge match, they can challenge the next player in line on the ladder the next day. However, if a player loses a challenge they issued, they must wait until the next calendar month before they can challenge again.
If a player gets hurt, must leave or quit for any reason once a challenge match has begun, they forfeit that match.
Varsity teams will take the top 7 guys and girls to matches during the Fall team tennis season and the top 8 guys and girls during the Spring individual tennis season. JV will constitute everyone that did not qualify for varsity.
