NEW DIVISION CO-ED U8
(11/21 POINTS CHALLENGE)
NO SERVE – UNDERHAND FEEDING
(For kids who can’t underhand feed, a coach will feed for them)
TPZ 11/21 is a game played on a traditional tennis court, but scored and orchestrated more like ping pong than tennis. Each player takes turn drop hitting 5 serves in a row to the deuce court and then each player takes turns drop hitting 5 serves to the ad court. This rotation continues until one player reach 11/21. At 10/20 all, the player up in rotation feeds the last point. A feed is considered “in” if it goes anywhere on side of the court that the feeder is serving in singles and anywhere on the side of the court the feeder is serving to plus the alley in doubles. On a traditionally painted tennis court on the back part of the court where the hash mark and the center service have a space (center of the backcourt,) players must decide whether it was on appropriate side by estimating where the line would be carried through from the center hash mark to the center service box line.
Servers must strike the ball with their racket hand above the point of contact.
