TIE BREAKING PROCEDURES - THE TWELVE POINT TIE BREAK

The tie-break is a scoring device used to prevent long matches.

SINGLES

A player who first wins seven points shall win the game and set provided he leads by a margin of two points. If the score reaches five points all, the game shall be extended until this margin has been achieved. Numerical scoring shall be used throughout the tie-break.

The player who served the first game of the set serves the first point of the tie-break from the right court. His opponent shall serve the second and third points from the left and right courts, respectively, and thereafter each player shall serve alternatively for two consecutive points (left court, right court) until the winner of the game and set has been decided.

DOUBLES

In doubles the procedure for singles shall apply. The team who served the first game of the set serves the first point of the tie-break from the right court, with partners preserving their serving sequence. Thereafter each player shall serve in rotation for two points, until the winners of the game and set have been decided.

Players change ends after every six points.
