Our first ladder pairing – with some confusion! – was August 25th. The club will be pairing the ladder board on Friday nights when we don’t have an event. On Tuesdays, players may challenge up to three places up; player #12 may challenge players 11, 10 or 9, etc. Players mutually agree to time controls. All ladder games are touch-move!
