Common rules for Tennis:

  • If a ball is hit outside of the playing field, the offensive team loses a point and the defensive team gets to keep it.

  • It is forbidden for players or teams to use their racquets to carry or catch the ball.
  • Repeated contact with the ball will result in a penalty.
  • The rule states that players must wait until the ball is out of bounds to attempt a return.
  • A player loses a point if they fail to return a live ball before it has bounced twice.
  • If the ball makes contact with a player, that’s a foul.
  • A warning is issued if the racquet is dropped or if foul language is used.
  • Any ball that rolls within the boundaries is good.

Game: Each game is worth 4 points, and the winner is the first player to reach 4 points with a 2-point lead or greater.

Set: The first player or team to win six games in a set with a lead of at least two points is declared the winner of the set.

Match: Played over the course of three or five sets, a match is a traditional format.

Deuce: When the score is tied at 40-40, it’s called a “deuce.” Any player or team that wins two consecutive points is declared the winner of the game. If a player gains an advantage by winning a point but then loses the following point, the score goes back to being tied at two.

Tie-Break game: In the event of a 6-6 tie-in set that uses tie-break rules, the set will go to a decisive seventh game. It takes 7 points, or a two-point lead, to win a tie-breaker game.
