Singles ladder available to all paid up members of Armley Tennis Club

Members of Armley Tennis Club can join an ‘App’ run singles competition designed and managed by Sportch

It provides a flexible competition for all members keen to play more singles tennis. We think the downloadable app makes it easy to arrange games and fun to play.

For more information on the competition, please watch this video and see the FAQ’s below. Please email with any other query if you still have questions. 

If you are interested, please follow the guidance at the bottom of this page (Question 8) to register with Sportch and get yourself ready for a bit of singles tennis!

Q1: What is this competition? This is an ongoing SINGLES tennis competition, available to all members over the age of 18 and of any ability.

Q2: What about doubles? Not yet unfortunately, but Sportch are currently working on a doubles format.

Q3: How much will it cost me? This SPORTCH club ladder is exclusive and free to all paid up club members.

Q4: How does it work? You play people of a similar ability within a group of 5 and accrue points for winning. Wins and losses will see you rise or fall on the club ladder which will be managed by an ‘App’ that you must register with (see Q8 below).

Q5: How is my starting position decided? It is based on the standard you assign yourself when you first register but you will quickly find your level based on your results.

Q6: What happens if I become injured or if I am on holiday etc? You can select yourself as ‘inactive’ on the ladder at any time which will automatically remove you for as long as you wish. When you are ready to play again, you pick up with the same points so you should not drop down the ladder too far.

Q7: Do you need to play a fixed number of games/sets? No. The two players decide on the length of the match – there is no minimum and no maximum length of a match.

Q8: Great, I’m in! What do I need do next? Follow the instructions below.
