No-Ad Scoring *

                There is an alternative scoring method for winning a game. NO-AD scoring can replace the traditional 15, 30, 40 method. Beginning players should learn the traditional scoring system first and use it for several months before replacing it with NO-AD scoring. Most tournaments do not use NO-AD. The actual playing the point  is the same in both methods.

When using NO-AD scoring, the players call the points, 1,2,3, and 4. A game is won when a player or team wins 4 points. If the score reaches 3-3, the player or team does not have to win two more points--there is no "deuce-ad" situation. At 3-3, the receiver tells the server into which service court the serve must be served. Below is a comparison chart of the two methods.

30-30     2-2
