Fast4 Mixed Doubles

Date: June 23
Organizer Contact: Tiffany Mack

WHAT:  This is a multi-match (Fast4 format) one day mixed doubles event.  Format may differ depending on number of sign-ups, but our goal is to provide each team with at least 4 matches. The day will start off with round robin groups. Depending on sign-ups we may also run a single-knock out tournament or playoff round in the afternoon.  Please register if you’re interested and once we know the number of participants the format will be distributed.

WHO:  All levels are welcome to sign-up!  PS – have you ever heard the 30/30/30 rule?  30% of the time play players at your level, 30% play below your level & 30% above your level.  Each presents it’s own challenges and opportunities for improvement!

WHERE:  All match-ups will be played at the Saanich Tennis Club courts on Viewmont Avenue.

COST:  $16 per team, includes balls

What is a Fast4 Match?

FAST4 Tennis provides a simple, exciting way of speeding up a conventional tennis match. The fundamentals of tennis remain the same, but there are four rules that ensure matches are fast, competitive, exciting and can be completed in a reasonable period of time.

1. First to 4 games (with a 2-game lead) wins the set

2. At 3 games all a tiebreak is played to 5 points, with a deciding point if required, at 4-4

3. No ad scoring (same gender serves to same gender on the deuce/sudden death point)

4Best of 3 sets wins the Match. Third set is a regular FAST4 set, not a tie-break.
