What is Thirty30 tennis?

Updated: Nov 26, 2019

Professional tennis is sports entertainment in 2018 and the sport’s governing bodies are not afraid to tinker with the rules to give us what they believe is a more exciting version of the game that will capture new fans and players. One idea that might play a role one day is Thirty30 tennis.

What is Thirty30 tennis?

Thirty30 tennis is the new and complementary scoring method that creates shorter, more exciting matches, and brings tennis into the 21st century.

Thirty30 tennis has been created to give both recreational and professional tennis players an alternative to the traditional scoring method and is to be used where appropriate.

In the same way Twenty20 (T20) cricket has revolutionised how cricket is played, Thirty30 (T30) tennis is a speedier form of the traditional game and can reinvigorate competition and grow tennis in the future.

There is an appetite within tennis for shorter format matches.

Shorter format matches were trialed last year at the ATP Next Gen finals in Milan and there have also been a series of five Tie Break Tens “one-night winner-takes-all” exhibition events held over the last two years.

Tennis Australia’s FAST4 format is also increasingly being used worldwide.

One set of Thirty30 tennis takes no longer than a ‘bite-size’ 20 minutes, a best-of-3 sets match can be completed in 40-60 minutes and a best-of-5 sets match in 60-90 minutes.

Since trialling of Thirty30 was launched all over the world at the end of December 2017 it has been receiving very encouraging feedback (now 130+) and this can be found on the page link below:
