Scoring System

Players or couples have been allocated a score upon which they start each game

The system is as follows

  • +15.3 means you start each odd game 1,3,5 etc on 15( Only 3 points to win the game) and each even game 2,4,6,8etc on 30 (Only 2 points to win the game)
  • +15 means you start each game on 15
  • +0.3 means you start each odd game 1,3,5 etc on Scratch(love or normal four points to win the game) and each even game 2,4,6,8etc on 15
  • Scr means this is a normal start at love
  • -0.3 means you start each odd game 1,3,5 etc on Scratch(love or normal four points to win the game) and each even game 2,4,6,8etc on –15( you need to win five points to win the game, the first to return to love and then the normal four)

If both players are on a plus or minus then the handicaps cancel on a point for point basis but a plus and minus remain for the match.
