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 wins the set
2. At 3 games all a tiebreak is played to 5 points
3. No ad scoring (same gender serves to same gender on the deuce/sudden death point)
4. Best of 3 sets wins the Match. Third set is a super tiebreak (play to 10, win by 2).
