What is a ladder tournament?

A ladder (or pyramid) tournament is an open competition where members play matches against each other and move up and down in the ranking as they win or lose.

Members of the tournament are listed as if on the bricks of a pyramid. The pinnacle is the highest ranked member. Immediately underneath, lie the second and the third members, and so on. Members of the tournament can challenge higher ranked opponents. If the challenger upsets the higher seeded player, the challenger moves up and takes the spot of the defeated player (that loses one position).

ABOUT ME I am a union and community activist with varied interests. These include: Politics, Social Justice, Canadian literature, the Opera, Theater, photography, golf (when it is not too serious), and walking the sea wall (when it is not raining too hard). I have also re-discovered my passion for Table Tennis, as both a sport and Leisure activity. In the fall of 2007 I suddenly lost my partner and the Love of my Life – Barb Brown. Included in her legacy to me are many fond memories, a wonderful family, and some very special friendships, and some of the more refined interests noted above. As an avid reader and CBC fan – I have yet to pick the winner on CBC’s “Canada Reads”. But I have found winners in the books nominated. One of my favorites is “Rock Bound” by Frank Parker Day – I recommend clearing your schedule before starting to read it. Since one of my two Bengal cats is named Rebus, some of you will rightly assume I am an Ian Rankin fan. My other cat is named Theo (short for Theophilus, which was the name of a character on the series Buck Rogers in the 25th Century). So in spite of my passion for Can Lit, I also enjoy good movies, mysteries, historical fiction, science fiction, and even non-fiction. In the non-fiction category; the Golden Spruce is one of my favorites, and is so well written that it was like reading a novel. Unfortunately my favourite bookseller Duthie Books closed at the end of February 2010. I am currently in the process of winding up AMM First Services Ltd,the consulting company I set up with my kids after retiring from CUPE in 2009.While The work I have been doing for Unions, NGO’s and non-profits has been rewarding, I am looking forward to devoting more time to my other interest.
