First thing, if you don't have an account yet, please signup to Tenniscall here and download the TennisCall app from Google Play or the App Store:
Based on how you play tennis in real life, you can use Tenniscall in 2 possible ways:
- if you are a COMPETITIVE PLAYER, use Tenniscall to play matches, build a history, keep track of your results. You can play matches in 3 environments: Ladders, Tournaments and the City League (see below);
- if you are a NON-COMPETITIVE PLAYER, use Tenniscall to stay connected with other players, meet new people, arrange hitting sessions without points, sparring or training sessions, find tennis coaches, clubs, courts, tennis groups nearby, etc.
If you play tennis in a group of people, you should definitely try LADDERS. Tenniscall gives you the possibility to create and fully manage ladders. A ladder is an invitation-only tennis league where you and your friends will challenge each other until the end of the competition. Based on the number of participants, ladders can even last a few months, so you can play it as a seasonal event. As group administrator, you will be able to fully manage groups from 4 to 50 players (add / invite / remove players), configure the ladder's settings (start / end date, define score and match type, set the rules of the competition, etc.) and even charge an admission fee if you want to get a small reward for your work as event organizer. Group administrators may take part to the competition or simply act as event organizers.
TOURNAMENTS is another invitation-only competition you can play with your group of friends. Tournaments require less time than Ladders as they are generally completed in a couple of weeks. You can setup and manage either small or large tournaments, from 4 up to 64 players. Seeds and draws are either manually or automatically generated by the system (based on the participants' tenniscall ranking). As group administrator, you can configure the tournament's settings (start / end date, define score and match type, set the rules of the competition, etc.) and even charge an admission fee if you want to get a small reward for your work as event organizer. Group administrators may take part to the competition or simply act as event organizers.
THE CITY LEAGUE
Every Tenniscall user is automatically enrolled to the tennis league in his / her city. The City League is an open environment without any restriction nor obligation. The City League supports both Singles and Doubles matches. Users can challenge players of any age, gender, tennis level without any limitation in their city. However, players are not obliged to accept the challenge and there are no penalties for declining an invite or withdrawing from a match. After playing the match, players will post the score in the system, earn Tenniscall points and get a ranking similar to a professional tennis circuit's.
The City League is a great way to play competitive games with new people at various levels (from beginners to advanced). Just look at who plays tennis in your city and challenge the players that better suit your level.
Click here to play the City League and select your city from the dropdown selector on top.
If you don't like competitions, please change your Game preferences here and select "None" in the Match-Type dropdown selector. At that point, other players won't be able to challenge you to matches and your name will be taken off the City League leaderboard grid and other ranking pages. Nevertheless, you will still be allowed to search players nearby, use Messenger to contact players and tennis coaches, setup non-competitive tennis groups, etc.
