Play 3 x tiebreaks to 7 points with a deciding point at 6-6 in the first 2 breakers, the final breaker is a standard one where the winner must be ahead by at least 2 points. Also the first 2 tiebreaks are played with one players serving all points – the winner of the coin toss can choose to serve or receive the first one and must do the opposite in the second. The final tie-break is played completely standard with alternating server on odd points.
Play sets up to 4 games with a tiebreaker at 3-3 with deciding point at 6-6. Winner is first to get 2 sets and at 1-1 in sets a standard tiebreaker should be played to decide the match.
How to play a standard Tie-breaker
The person whose turn to serve serves first and serves just 1 point from the right/deuce side. The other player then serves two points, first from the left/advantage side and then from the right/deuce side. The other player then does the same so that the players serve 2 points in a row in turn left then right.
The players must also swop ends after every 6 points.
The players continue until one player has reached 7 points, but the player must lead by two clear points, otherwise play continues until one player is ahead to that margin.
The match scores can be entered in the WhatsApp group chat, where the organiser will be a member of all groups.
