There are always certain things people want to know about tennis; like how to keep score, when to call it out, and etc. I am here to share 7 things you need to know about tennis.
The score is 15, 30, and then 40. To win a game, one team (or person) has to get up to 40 points.
What does deuce mean? Deuce means it is tied. To win at deuce, one team (or person) has to get ad-in and get one more point after that.
In doubles, you have the whole court (including the alleys), in singles, you do not have the alleys.
If the ball hits the tennis net while serving it is called a “Let ball”, which means that the person gets another first serve. If they have a “Let ball” on their second serve, then they just get another second serve.
To decide who serves first or who receives first is like heads or tails but with a tennis racket. For example: With a Wilson racket a person may say “M” or “W” and then they will spin it on the ground and whatever letter it lands on then that person who called it gets to decide.
There are many different ways of calling a ball out. For example you can say “no”, “long”, “wide”, and even “nay”.
How to tell when a ball is out: When it does not hit the lines or any area inside the line. How to tell a ball is out on a serve: When it does not go in the right serving box, goes too far past the serving box, or does not make it over the net. (If the ball hit the line on a serve it is still considered in).
These are just some random things that come to use when playing. It is definitely not all someone needs to know about tennis. These are just things to know that come in handy, according to me.
