The two week Rule
  It is to your benefit to play games within the two-week periods. At the end of every two-week period, players/teams that have played a game are moved up the ladder until they bump into another player/team that has played a game. Then the player/team that was bumped into is moved up the ladder until that player/team bumps into another player/team that has played a game. You can move up the ladder very quickly simply by playing games regardless of whether you win or lose. After players/teams are moved up the ladder, the same process is used to move players/teams that have not played down the ladder. Therefore, if you have not played a game during the two-week time period, you will be moved down the ladder an unlimited number of positions until you bump into someone else that has not played. Then that person will be moved down until they bump into someone else who has not played.
Holiday Status
  You may turn your Holiday Status on for a total of 45 days per year. When your holiday status is on, opponents can not contact you for games and you will not lose your spot in the Ladder rankings.
Key to Success
  • Accept or reject ALL game requests from your Home Court.
  • Play regularly or put your account on Holiday Status from your Home Court.
  • Show up on time for all scheduled games.
  • Bring a ball to each game.
  • Pick a location that is not too busy for game play.
  • When in doubt, the higher ranking team/player makes the decision.
