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