CTA Challenge Ladder

Join Another Exciting Season of the CTA Challenge Ladder!


The CTA Challenge Ladder program has been supported and led by the Charlotte Tennis Association since its inception in 2005 when it was founded to meet the needs of players in the greater Charlotte community. The CTA Challenge Ladder program has been in continuous operation offering four seasons per year of singles/doubles/mixed doubles play across all levels with close to 2,000 participants in 2013. It's a great way to connect with players at your level and play at your own convenience. 

The CTA Challenge Ladder ranks players weekly using computer points similar to the ways that pros are ranked. This Ladder is an activity generator, and points are awarded for matches played. Players/teams set their own matches at their convenience and can play as often as they want, wherever they want. The more you play, the more points you receive to improve your ranking (even if you lose!!). Each season culminates with a playoff event for the top finishers on the various Ladders.
