APPENDIX 3 - ALTERNATIVE SCORING SYSTEMS

1. Point-a-rally scoring to 15

Rule 2 is replaced by:

2.1 The winner of a rally scores 1 point and serves to begin the next rally.

2.2 Each game is played to 15 points, except that if the score reaches 14-all, the game continues until one player leads by 2 points.

2.3 A match is normally the best of 5 games, but may be the best of 3.

 

2. Hand-in/hand-out scoring

Rule 2 is replaced by:

2.1 The server, on winning a rally, scores a point; the receiver, on winning a rally, becomes the server without a change of score.

2.2 Each game is played to 9 points, except that if the score reaches 8-all, the receiver chooses, before the next service, to continue that game either to 9 (known as "Set 1") or to 10 (known as "Set 2"). The receiver must clearly indicate this choice to the Marker, Referee and the opponent.

2.3 A match is normally the best of 5 games, but may be the best of 3.
