"No-Ad" Scoring in a Tennis Match

  
         
   

“No-Ad” SCORING METHOD  -- This alternative scoring method is often used to prevent a tennis game from going endlessly. A standard game is scored as follows with the server's score being called first: No point - “Love” First point - “15” Second point - “30” Third point - “40” Fourth point - “Game” If both players/teams have won three points each, the score is “Deuce” and a deciding point shall be played. The receiver(s) shall choose whether to receive the service from the right half or the left half of the court. In doubles, the players of the receiving team cannot change positions to receive this deciding point. The player/team who wins the deciding point wins the “Game”. In mixed doubles, the player of the same gender as the server shall receive the deciding point. The players of the receiving team cannot change positions to receive the deciding point.
