Scoring System

Our unique point system creates a playoff atmosphere all season long. Matches are more exciting, competitive and meaningful because every game counts.

You earn points based on the set scores of your matches. This encourages you to fight hard for every game and rewards you for close losses. Best of all, in the true spirit of tennis, no matter how far down you are you can always come back! Each season this creates exciting playoff point races that go down to the wire.

Our point system also dramatically improves the quality of your competition. You'll find our players will be competing at their appropriate level. Because our system measures the degree or strength of each win, skill levels can be adjusted with a far greater degree of accuracy. This produces a consistent level of competition which is the hallmark of Ultimate Tennis.

Point Calculations:

The winner receives:
  • 12 points for a 3 set win

The loser receives:

One point for each game won in their two highest scoring sets. A player can receive up to a maximum of 8 points per match.

Example match score 6-4, 6-2

  • winner receives 14 points
  • loser receives 6 points

Example match score 6-2, 4-6, 7-5
