Thirty30 Tennis Comment
Thirty30 is the alternative shorter scoring method that retains the best bits of traditional scoring.
The Rules of Thirty30 are:
1. ‘SHORT GAME’ - 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. a “SHORT SET” tiebreak.
3. Change of ends after the first two games and then every four after that.
The game score ticks over more quickly and a set takes no longer than a ‘bite-size’ 20 minutes to complete.
Match results still look like: 6-4, 6-7(3), 6-3 - i.e. identical to traditional tennis.
The transition from traditional tennis scoring to Thirty30 is seamless.
