What is Team Tennis?
Team Tennis is a coed tennis league played with a team format.
Each match consists of six sets. Each set features a different configuration (Men's Singles, Men's Doubles, Women's Singles, Women's Doubles and Mixed Doubles x 2). Prior to each match, captains decide the order in which the sets will be played. Each player on a team usually plays in at least one of the five sets. Scoring is no-advantage; there is no requirement to win a game by two scores; at deuce (40-40), whoever scores the next point wins the game. The first team to reach six games wins each set. A nine-point tiebreaker is played, if a set reaches five-all. One point is awarded for each game won. If neccessary, a Super-Tiebreaker is played to determine the winner of the match.
