Texas Cup consist right now of three clubs. Those clubs are Austin Tennis Club, Houston Tennis Club, and Oak Lawn Tennis Club (Dallas). Once a year, each club comes together for a weekend and competes against each other. Each club takes the top 24 players in the club. At the end of the weekend, the club that has the most points (wins) wins the Texas Cup and bragging rights for the top club in Texas!

The Ladder is where members of the club play each other to determine how each other ranks in the club, and this is what determines who goes to play in Texas Cup. If you beat the player above you, you go up. If you lose against the player above you, you stay where you are. If the player below you beats you, you move down.
