FAST FOUR RULES
The Fast Four shortened format offers a “fast” alternative to tennis, with four points, four games and four rules:
First to four games wins the set
Tie-break at 3-3
Lets are played
Fast Four Format Clarification:
Match consists of best-of-three sets. The short sets will be first to four games.
A five-point tie-break will occur at 3-3. If a tie-break goes to 2-2, a “sudden death” point will be played to determine the winner of match.
No-Ad Scoring. At 40-all, “next point wins” the game. The receiver chooses the side of the court the service point is to be played.
Playing a let: If the ball hits the net on a serve and bounces in the correct service box, play will continue. In doubles, either of the receiving players can play the let (e.g. the receiver’s partner can move across and return the serve).
