Thirty30 Tennis Comment

It appears that innovative shortened scoring methods and different event formats have a large role to play in the promotion of Seniors tennis in the near future.

Thirty30 tennis produces shorter more dynamic matches and is an alternative to “sets to 4 games using no ads” and the “match tie-break to 10 points”.

Thirty30 tennis is ideal for round-robin type events where all of the players are involved throughout the whole competition.
