Level-Matched League Play (LMLP) 

** Please note that the registration deadline for the Level-Matched League Play (LMLP) has now passed for this season.  If you are still interested in participating in the LMLP or would like to be added to a waitlist, please send a message to Chris at the e-mail address below. **

Unique to the Fergus Tennis Club, our level-matched doubles leagues ensure that YOU are getting the best tennis FOR YOU, each and every week. Not competitive in the traditional sense — we DO keep scores, but we DON'T track wins and losses. Instead, we track your individual performance in order to match you with the most appropriate partners each and every week.  Please note that Level-Matched League Play is gender indifferent, as it focuses on a player’s ability, not gender. ** If you are interested in an exclusively women’s league, please sign up for our Wednesday group.**

“The FTC level matching system is great. Each week, I knew that I’d be with players who would challenge my abilities, but I never felt overwhelmed or overmatched. I didn’t always win, but I always had a good time, and by the end of the year I was really happy with how my tennis improved.”
- Bill, FTC Member
“I was skeptical of this level match system at first, because I’m not a competitive person. Thankfully, the FTC system just makes sure you’re playing with people at your level. It took the pressure off, and everyone could focus on having fun.”
- Cynthia, FTC Member

Mixed Singles Box Ladder — ALL levels!

Players start in a ‘box’ with other players at their level. All players have one month to organize a game with each of the other players in their box. By the end of the first month, highest-scoring players move to a higher-level box, lowest-scoring to a lower-level box, and middle-scoring stay in their box. Over the course of the summer, participants will get a chance to play with a variety of players and meet new people. The number of games you would play depends on the number of people who sign up, but averages five per month. 

  • Number Rating:  EVERYONE!  Number rating 2.0 to 5.0 and up
  • Cost:  Free with membership.
