How many games are in a set? How many sets are in a match?

When the score is 40-40 (Deuce), the next point wins the game.

When is a tie-break played? Who serves and how many? How many points to win a tie-break? When do players change sides in a tie- break?

In tennis, is a ball that lands on the line, “IN” or “OUT”?

IN

If you do not see if a ball is “in” or “out” what do you do?

Play it, if you can. If you can’t play it, you have to call it “in”.

The ball hits the frame of your racquet and goes in. What is the ruling?

The ball is in play.

In doubles, do both of the partners have to see the ball “out” in order to call it “OUT”?

No, only one of you has to see it and call it “OUT”.

In doubles, when can partners change the side of the court that they receive the serve from and/or change the order in which they serve?

Only at the beginning of a new set.

When do you walk across another player’s court?

Only at the conclusion of their point.

You go back to retrieve a lob, run into the fence and trip. Do you call a “LET” and replay the point? Why or why not.

No, the fence, net posts, netting on indoor courts, and cracks in the court are pre-existing and are called “permanent fixtures”. Interference with them does not qualify as a “LET”.

When do you call a “LET” during a point?

Any time a ball, person, or another object (that is out of your control), enters your court and distracts you AND the point has not concluded.

You suspect your opponent calls your ball “out” when you thought it was “in”. What do you do?

You respectfully ask, “Are you sure?” If they say, “Yes”, you have to let it go. If they say, “No”, then it is your point. If it happens again, ask again. At the change over tell Coach.

Both you and your opponent have forgotten the score. What do you do?

Determine the most recent score you both agree upon and resume play from that point.

What are ground strokes?

Hitting the ball from beyond the service line, on your forehand or backhand side, after the ball has bounced.

What is it called when the ball is hit out of the air before it bounces?

A volley

What is the stroke called that you hit from the middle of your court, after the ball has bounced?

A Half-volley.

What is the ground stroke called that you hit before you go to the net to volley?

An approach shot.

Why is hitting topspin on ground strokes important?

As players hit more pace and power, top spin is necessary in order to keep the ball in the court.

When serving, how many tosses do you get before you have to hit the serve.

If you do not like your toss, you may let it bounce without penalty. However, there is a 30 second time limit in between points.

When the score is Deuce (40-40), who decides which side (deuce- side or ad -side) the point is played from?

When do players change sides of the court?

When the number of games played adds up to an odd number.

On the same side of the net, what are the two ways to name the left and right sides of the court.

Deuce Court = Forehand Court (side of the court each games start from, the side of the court you serve / receive from when the score is Deuce). Ad-Court = Backhand Court (side of the court you serve / receive if score is ad-in or ad-out during ad scoring).

Name three different grips that you can use when holding the racquet.

Semi-Western Forehand Western Forehand Eastern Forehand Eastern Backhand Two Handed Backhand Continental
