T30 Blog: An Invitation to organise a ‘Thirty30 Tennis Fun Tournament’



Thirty30 tennis invites you to organise a ‘Thirty30 Tennis Fun Tournament’.


I am a tennis enthusiast who has created a more dynamic shorter scoring format called ‘Thirty30’ tennis to help encourage:


(1) youngsters into tennis


(2) playing more sets


and


(3) more competition


Thirty30 tennis = shorter matches = more matches = more opponents = more fun!


Thirty30 tennis is suitable for all ages and all levels of play.


If you are interested in organising a 'Thirty30 Tennis Fun Tournament', please contact:


contact@thirty30tennis.com


and I will email you the appropriate pdf files as shown below.


After the tournament is completed, all that I require from you is general feedback on how the event went.


Many thanks.

Thirty30 Tennis Comment


Thirty30 is the alternative shorter scoring format that unlike Fast4, does not upset the fundamental scoring system of tennis – sets are still played to 6 games (lead by 2) with a tiebreak at 6-6, the Ad points are still played out and players still need to win at least "2 points in a row" to win a game.


The Rules of Thirty30 are:


1. All games start from 30-30; announced “thirty-thirty”.


2. If a set reaches 6-6, a nine-point tiebreaker (first to five points) is played, with sudden death at 4-4. i.e. as per the “Short Set” tiebreak in Appendix V of the ITF Rules of Tennis.


3. No tiebreak in final set.


4. Change of ends after the first two games and then every four after that.


5. Alternate servers for the start of each set.


The game score ticks over more quickly, is more dynamic and a set takes no longer than a ‘bite-size’ 20 minutes to complete with a maximum number of three change of ends (or four if a tiebreak is required).


Match results still look like: 6-4, 5-7, 7-6 (3), 2-6, 9-7 - i.e. identical to traditional tennis.


The transition from traditional tennis scoring to Thirty30 is seamless.
