USAPA Ladder Software
USAPA provides free doubles ladder league-management software and website space for local clubs and communities that want to conduct ladder leagues in their area.
USAPA Ladder Software Update – The current UPAPA ladder league software is not compatible with USAPA’s new MemberLeap member software system (implemented Dec. 2016). Existing ladders established before Dec. 2016 should continue to operate ‘as is’ without issue.
However, users who wish to create new ladders or add to existing leagues will need to use a newer version of this ladder league software found at holdmycourt.com. Likewise, existing ladder captains/managers looking to reassign their ladder to another captain/manager may not be able to do so. If so, you will need to create a new ladder league using the updated software.

Format: Doubles ladder. You don’t need to have a partner.
The format provides for the maximum amount of flexibility for the players. Players may enter or leave a ladder at any time or miss a week or more because of their schedule as long as they inform the ladder captain before the schedule is made out for the upcoming week.
The format is designed so that players mostly play others of similar skill level. The ranking is based on the winning
percentage (ratio of points won to total points possible). Players will move up or down the ladder based upon their winning percentage. The results of the ten most recent weeks will be used for the calculation.
Tutorial/Demo: A demo is available so that prospective ladder managers can review the features and operation of the ladders. Click here for a Flash tutorial. This is a large 385 KB file. It requires the Free Adobe Flash Player available here.
