[tennisbiz] Re: Tennis Challenge Ladder

From: Joe Rill <>
Date: Fri 16 Jul 2004 10:10:12 EDT

When we started coaching, our HS Team ladder consisted of Wooden Clothes Pins
with names written in felt tip pen (You could clip them to the fence or to
free poster board from the school). We evolved to a metal board with magnetic
names printed by computer. The magnetic system was almost free and could be
used the following years. The thin metal board came from the bottom panel of a
dishwasher (many of them have an extra one of different color behind the one
in front). We bound the sharp edges with colored duct tape and punched holes
in it so we could hang it at the courts with two "S" hooks.

The names and information on the board were printed from the computer, cut
out, and stuck to magnetic tape. The tape came from several sources. If you
want to buy the items, they are available at office supply stores (e.g.,
Staples) for use with business cards that can be stuck to the refrigerator. You can
get larger pieces of magnetic tape either there or at a hardware store. If
you don't want to buy them, magnetic business cards are available as a
promotional/advertizing items from some commercial establishments or from some local,
state, and federal agencies. If you explain that you are going to use them for
HS students they are usually glad to donate the small number required. Each
business card size can be scissor-cut into two or three name sized strips
depending on how many you need and the size of the metal board.
