EVENT FORMAT/RULES – please read carefully as they are a little different

  1. There are no service lets. That means, when the serve hits the net cord and goes into the proper service court, it is in play....there is no let (re-serve). Either partner can return the serve, and play continues.
  2. First one to win 8 games wins the set. A five point tie-breaker will be used at 7-7. Each player serves two points, and if the scores gets to 4-4, the receiving side again will have the choice of left or right side to receive the serve.
  3. A handicap scoring system will also be used.  The team who is behind in score gets one point for each game they are behind up to 3 points max.  Say Team A is leading 1-0 vs Team B.  In the second game, team B will start that game 15 love.  If Team A is up 3-0 in the set, Team B will start the next game at 40-0. The maximum number of points a team can have is 3 points (that means a 40-0 lead). If Team A is leading Team B 7-0, Team B will only start with a 40-0 lead.
