Substitute Process

    • NEW!  MAXIMUM score recorded for your sub is 22 points. 
    • Please limit yourself to two SUBS during an 8-week league session.
    • SUBS cannot elevate a PLAYER’s ranking in the ladder.
    • If a SUB does not show up, PLAYER will get 0 points for the day.

Before each session begins, all registered players will receive a confirmation email with a link to the substitute player list. It is the registered players’ responsibilities to find a substitute if they are unable to play for any reason.  If a substitute is not provided, it will impact the other players assigned to your court.  See “Penalty” below.


You may have a SUB two times during an 8-week league session.  Excessive use of SUBS, especially when there is a cluster of SUBS grouped together in a ladder, sometimes make it difficult for others to move up and down the ladder around them. 

If you already know that you will miss more than 2 league days, we ask that you move to the Sub List so we can give the spot to someone on the waitlist.  We understand that circumstances, such as injuries and illness, are beyond your control.  Please reach out to a League Administrator in a timely manner.



    • Sub must be same level as you. 
    • For men’s and women’s doubles ladders, the substitute must identify as the same gender as the registered player. 
    • A sub cannot elevate a player’s ranking in the previous week, but they can lower your ranking.
      • MAXIMUM score a sub can earn for you is 22 points. If they score less than 22 points, then actual scores will be recorded.



If no one shows up to play for you, regardless of where the fault lies, your score for the day will be recorded as 0. No Show Policy will be strictly enforced


Secure A Sub

Option 1:  WPL Sub List

The WPL Sub List is password-protected and shared with the current season League players and subs. This is the substitute list for CSHS, SeaTac, and Tukwila Leagues through June 2024.  Please make sure the sub is not already a registered player for your location before contacting them. 

    • Only registered players have been granted access to the list.  The email address you used to register is the address that was granted access to the Sub List. 
    • All players on the Sub List are registered with the league and has signed the waiver.
    • Please bookmark this list on your phone or computer so you can easily access it throughout the session.
