Alternative Formats

Alternative-format events such as Tiebreak Tournaments, Fast4, and One-on-One Doubles offer players a chance to play competitively in one-day and abbreviated tournaments rather than giving up an entire weekend.

Alternative formats include torunament styles such as:


The four key rules in Fast4 are:

  1. Play “let” serves that drop in
  2. It’s no-ad tennis, as once a game reaches deuce, a “Power Point” decides the game
  3. At 3-games all in a set, a short tiebreak is played (first to 5 points), and a Power Point determines the winner if the tiebreak reaches 4 points all
  4. Four is the magic number, as 4 games wins a set
