The format: one eight game pro set with no-ad scoring with a 12 point tie break at 8 games all. An eight game pro set is first to win eight games by a margin of two. At forty all a game sudden death point is played with the receiver choosing the side to finish the last point. Players switch sides on odd games. There is a 90 second break on off games (sum total of games played) starting at the end of game 3. Scores should be reported by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Balls will be handed out to players before their first match. Winners keep the new cans of balls.
No ad scoring means that at 40 all or deuce the next point wins the game in sudden death. The receiver chooses which side to take the deciding serve. So the scoring is 15, 30, 40, Game. At 40 all or deuce the next point decides that game!
12-Point Tie-BreakThe12-point tie-break is played at 6-all in each set. Procedures and scoring for the tiebreake is as follows:
Serving - The player whose turn it is to serve will be the Server for the first point and will serve the first point from the deuce or right side of the court. The opponent will then serve the second and third points. The second point will be served from the ad or left side of the court and the third point is served from the deuce or right side of the court. Players will continue by serving alternately for two consecutive points. Each time the server switches the new server begins serving on the ad or left side of the court.
TIP: When the score total is EVEN, you always serve from the deuce side. When the score total is ODD you always serve from the Ad side.
Changing Ends - Players change ends after every 6 points and at the conclusion of the tie-break game. For example, when the score reaches 4 - 2, the players will switch sides. Note: The player serving immediately prior to a changeover will take their second serve once the changeover is made.
Scoring - Players receive one point for each point won. The tie-break winner is the first player to reach seven points provided there is margin of two points. If there is not a margin of two points, play continues until a two point margin is reached.
If service from a wrong half of the court occurs and is undetected, all resulting play shall stand, but the error should be corrected as soon as it is discovered.
