Every 2 weeks you receive an email invitation for a ClubLadder match. You play someone of your level that you haven't played in the last 10 weeks. A day will be suggested based on the availability of both players.

The matches are processed at the end of the round:
  • You switch ranks if you win from someone ranked higher.
  • You drop 1 spot if you do cancel the match or if you skipped the last two rounds.
  • You are removed from the ladder if you cancel your matches two rounds in a row.


The rules to determine the winner vary per sport and can be adjusted by the club. Go to your ClubLadder to read the rules. You also find the rules in every match email.

The winner registers the score on this site. If the player with the lower rank wins, you exchange ranks.

Frequently asked questions


Are you a new player? When you join a ladder we check your play level. The higher your level, the higher up the ladder you start. We place you right underneath the 'zone' of players with a similar play level.

Are you an existing player? Then we check the results of the last round. When you win a match from someone placed higher on the ladder, you swap positions. However:

  1. New players with a higher play level may be ranked higher than you.
  2. If you lose from a new player that has won all matches so far, you only move down 1 spot.
  3. If you play multiple matches in a single round, your ranking increases and decreases are combined.
  4. Your new ranking is never higher than your highest win.
  5. You may end up at the same position as another player. We then compare results of the current round, in the following order:
    1. The results of any direct match between you and the other player.
    2. The results of any match with a 3rd player, if both of you have played this 3rd player.
    3. Loss of a higher ranked player that would have counted towards your ranking in the following round (and vice versa).
    4. If still inconclusive, we compare the ranking of you and the other player at the start of the round.
  6. Cancel and skip rounds:
    1. If you cancel the match you drop 1 spot
    2. If you skip 2 rounds in a row you drop 1 spot
    3. If both players cancel the match, it is interpreted as skipping a round

Example 1

In round 6, Peter (#8) wins from Andrew (#12). So the players do not swap positions. A new player with 6 stars joins the ladder at position #7: Thomas. So Peter and Andrew both move down 1 position to make space for the new player.

Example 2

In round 7, the new player Thomas (#7) wins from Jeremy (#4). Thomas moves to position #4. Jeremy moves to #5 due to rule 2. The numbers #5 and #6 also drop 1 spot to make space for the new player that has won all his matches so far.

Example 3

In round 7, Peter (#9) wins from William (#6), and Peter loses to Steve (#11). Due to rule 3, Peter moves up 1 position to #8 because the combined ranking increase equals +3 -2 = 1. Both Steve and William move to position #9. Rule 5.2 now applies: Steve moves to position #9 and William moves to position #10: William lost his match with Peter, and Steve won his match with Peter.

Example 4

In round 8, Peter (#8) wins from Jeremy (#6), and wins from Daniel (#7). The combined ranking increase equals +1 +2 = 3, however Peter moves up 2 positions to #6 due to rule 4: Highest win. Both Daniel and Jeremy move down to position #8. However, due to rule 5.4 Daniel moves to position #8 and Jeremy moves to position #7.

We look at your last 2 match results to determine your 'ideal' opponent.

Let's say you are #9 and you won your last match from #10. The next round you will probably play with #6, #7 or #8. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee this will succeed: Perhaps these players have already been assigned a match, or they skip a round, or you have already played with them recently. In that case it can happen that you will be assigned a match with someone ranked lower again.

If you win twice in a row from a player ranked lower, you will get the highest priority to play a higher ranked opponent in the following round.

Did you lose the last round? Then you will probably play someone ranked lower.

We also make sure you don't play someone that you have played with recently.


Make sure you are logged in, go to settings, click on the pause button and select the rounds you want to skip.


Please send us the match details including the name of the players and the club. We will include the results at the end of the current round.

You can postpone a match if both players agree by registering the planned match date. Otherwise, register 'cancel match' and select the other player. The other player drops 1 spot.


You can continue the match at a later date if both players agree. Otherwise, register 'cancel match' and select the injured player. The injured player drops 1 spot.


Click on 'My matches' and 'Cancel', then select the other player. The other player drops 1 spot.


If the match has been planned or registered the former player drops 1 spot. Try to prevent this by connecting with the other player before it is too late.


You can postpone a match if both players agree by registering the planned match date. Otherwise register 'Canceled' and select the other player, but try to be flexible when finding a common day.

You may expect the former player to send a match invite at least 3 days (72 hours) in advance of the proposed day. The former player may expect the other player to respond within 2 days (48 hours) after sending a proposal.


You can postpone a match if both players agree by registering the planned match date. Otherwise register 'Cancel' and then select 'both players'. The match will be processed as a 'skip'. Note that you drop 1 spot if you skip 2 rounds in a row.


Only results of official matches are counted towards your ranking. Results of other matches that are initiated by players can not be registered.

If you want to play more often, you can update your settings to play twice per round of 2 weeks.


A suitable proposal for planning the ladder match is:
  • The suggestion in the match email, or any of the days that the other player is available
  • At least 3 days from today, for example: On Thursday night you suggest to play on Sunday morning
  • Not later than 3 days after the end of the round in which the match was organised
You can also jointly agree on any other day!
