Peoria Tennis Ladder

Welcome to Peoria Tennis Ladder

Our motto is to unite tennis loving patrons in Peoria area and help them play the great game of tennis.

You are welcome to play at your own discretion and at your own risk. However, the Peoria Tennis Ladder or the Coordinators will NOT be held responsible for any matches played.

If the state or national guidelines develop that suggest tennis is inherently unsafe, or we have a stay-at-home order, then we reserve the right to shut down the session.

What is a Tennis ladder?

A tennis ladder league is a system for ranking a group of tennis players. It is also a great way to meet new players and have a lot of fun. In a tennis ladder, players are arranged like rungs of a ladder, and earn points to get to the top. Please watch the video below for an illustration of how Tennis Ladder works.

Some safety tips that the Board would encourage you to follow:

  1. Cancel a match and do NOT play if you feel sick, have a fever, or show symptoms of respiratory illness.

  2. Do NOT touch your face during the match and be sure to wash your hands with soap for a full 20 seconds after playing.

  3. Ensure ahead of time that the court you choose to play at is still open.

  4. Bring hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes to sterilize surfaces that you may touch that others may have also touched, especially metal surfaces.

  5. Maintain a 6-foot distance from other players at all times.

  6. Do NOT shake hands, bump elbows, or even touch rackets.

  7. If you take a break, sit on opposite sides of the court.

  8. Consider playing on the same side of the court for the entire match and not switch sides.

  9. Consider each player having their own can of balls marked for their services only. No one else on the court should pick up the server’s balls, just move them around with their racket. Only put two balls each in play at first, keeping one stored away in case someone forgets and handles another player’s ball. If someone is playing on the court next to you, ask them to only touch your stray ball with their racket, and you’ll do the same.

  10. Consider wearing a glove on your non-dominant hand, as a reminder to not touch your face or the other players’ balls.
