How far can your team climb the ladder? Who will claim the top rung?
NEWSFLASH - To wrap up the current pickleball challenge ladder, a playoff will be held for the top 8 teams indoors at Odell Weeks (gym 2) on Saturday, May 1, 2021. If you are not currently in one of the top eight positions, now is the time to start working your way up. The ladder will be frozen at midnight on Sunday, April 25th, so get your challenge matches and result forms entered before then.
To be fair to those trying to move up, teams will have a maximum of one week to arrange a match when challenged. If you are out of town, injured, or otherwise unable to complete the match, please go ahead and forfeit to the challenging team.
The playoff format will be determined soon.
