    Social games

    Hello,

    I would like to organise a tennis tournament which emphasises a particular area of the doubles game.

    What would be the best scoring method, if, for example, you wanted to encourage players to e.g. 'go for the tramlines' or force them to baseline, or volley?

    Things are slightly easier if the game is strategy-themed (e.g. serve-and-volley), but I would much prefer it if I could make a game, which is close enough to the real thing, lasts for about 15-20 minutes, doesn't stop, but forces players to work on a particular specified area.

    Any ideas would be most welcome

    Thanks - Gram

    I think you have to play a tie break or a mini tennis game where scoring is to 4 4 with a sudden death. On sudden death make the option of receiving serve open so that the receiving can nominate who to receive serve.

    Are you in HK?
