FAST4 Tennis provides a simple, exciting way of speeding up a conventional tennis match. The fundamentals of tennis remain the same, but there are four rules that ensure matches are fast, competitive, exciting and can be completed in a reasonable period of time.
It doesn’t matter how you get there, just make sure you do before your opponent does!
At 3 games all a tiebreak is played to 5 points. A deciding point will be played at 4 points all.
If the score reaches deuce, it’s a sudden death point. The receiver chooses which side to take the serve on. This also applies in doubles with the receiving pair deciding who receives the serve. However, the pair cannot change positions. In mixed doubles, the player of the same gender shall receive.
If the serve clips the net and lands in the service box, there’s no let and the ball is in play. If you are playing doubles either the receiver or the receiver’s partner can play the return.
