  • Standard club restrictions will apply:
  • Players book a court as normal, and organise their own games.
  • Players supply their own tennis balls.
  • Games should stop at the end of the booking period. Incomplete games get recorded as well with relevant score: every set counts, not only the final result.

Playing format

Players will play the Fast Fours format to fit with court booking times ( Format details below ).

Games should stop at

Matches will be played as the best of 2 short sets first to 4 games with a short tiebreak played at 3 games all (first to 5 points, deciding point at 4 points all, players should change ends every 4 points). If sets are even at the conclusion of the second set, a Match tiebreak (first to 10 points, deciding point at 9 points all) will be played to determine the outcome of the match.

All matches will be played using no-advantage scoring, with the receiver choosing the service side when the game reaches deuce.

No service lets will be played, meaning if the ball hits the net cord on a serve and lands within the correct service box, play will continue.

Incomplete games get recorded as well with relevant score: every set counts, not only the final result.
