If you are interested in the COED Singles Ladder Play, please contact Tom Ferguson @ email@example.com
The intent of the singles ladder will be to provide a way for players who enjoy singles to do so in a fun, competitive, organized, social way. It will be modeled after the doubles ladder run by Meg Duncan, with a few modifications to better accommodate singles play.
