1 Sound Tennis Sussex Tennis Rules, Scoring and Exercise Ideas Playing area on a badminton court: Playing area on a tennis court

2 Serving Ball touches the netcord on the serve Foot fault Ball touches the netcord at any other point in the game The ball hits a player before it touches the ground On the line? In or out? Rules Normal Tennis Rules You get 2 chances to serve If the ball falls in the serving area, replay the serve (called a let ), otherwise it is out If the server's foot touches, or is over, the backline when serving, it is a foot fault (= eg fault service) Play continues The point is always against the person who has been hit If the ball touches the line, it is called in Changes for Sound Tennis Before the serve, server calls Ready, server replies Yes, server says Play as they serve. but it is usual to warn the player they are in danger of a foot fault The point is against the person if they are standing in the court area, but the ball is called out if it the person it hits is outside of the playing area Umpire and line judges should not just say fault, but should explain if the ball was long (over the baseline), or wide (over the side lines) and can be asked to give an estimate of by how much the ball was

3 Volleying Bounces Games, sets and matches Scoring progression for games Calling the score Where the serve is played from Deuce You can hit the ball before it bounces You must hit the ball before the second bounce Scoring Matches are usually won by the first person to win a specified number of sets (usually best of 3 or 5 sets), each set being won by the person winning a specified number of games, each game being settled by winning a specified number of points. Except in a tie break, the scores in a game are: 0 (or love ) The server's score is usually called first by the umpire (for example 30 0 when the server has won the first 2 points) The first point is played from the right hand side of the court, and it alternates thereafter. If the score is 40 40, it is called deuce. The game must be won by 2 clear points, so the next player to score a point has advantage - if they out. Volleying not allowed. You cannot hit the ball before it bounces Sighted players can have 1 bounce, vision impaired 2 bounces, B1 (no sight) players can have 3 bounces Matches are often settled by just 1 set. except for the no advantage rule as described below. Often in tournaments no advantage or sudden death is played, and at deuce the next point won decides the game. In this instance, the

4 Sets Tie break Changing ends Standing to receive serve score the next point, they win the game. If they lose, it goes back to deuce. Sets are a series of games. A set is won by the first person winning 6 games and who has 2 clear games over the opponent (eg wins 6-4, 6-3,6-2,6-1 or 6-0). If the score is 6-5, a further game is played. If the score then becomes 7-5, the set is won. If it becomes 6-6 a tie break is played (see below). In some tournaments in the final set there is no tie break and play continues until one player has a 2 clear game margin over their opponent. Usually played first to seven points, but to be won by 2 clear points. In formal matches, players change ends after the first game, and then after every second game thereafter. On a tie break, players change ends when the first player has 5 points. In singles, the receiver swaps sides after each point to face the server receivers can say which side of the court they want the server to serve from. The tournament officials may decide to play sets of just 3 or 4 games, and may not apply the 2 clear games margin (so a set could be won 4-3) or apply a tie break. The rules will always be explained before the game. Usually the same, but sometimes just played first to 7 points. In some tournaments, matches can be decided by just playing a tie break to a specified number of points (eg 10).

5 Who serves first? Service thereafter who swaps sides. In doubles, the serving side change side for each point, but the receiving side stay on the same side so the players alternately receive the service. Strict tournament rules specify that the sides picked by the receivers must be consistent throughout each set. Usually the player who wins a coin toss decides who will serve first, and the other player decides what end to stand from. The service alternates with each game. For doubles, each player will take a turn to serve when it is their turn to serve. In a tie break, service changes after the first point, and after every 2 points thereafter, so in a tie break of A&B versus C&D 1 st point A serves 2 nd and 3 rd point C serves 4 th & 5 th point B serves 6 th and 7 th point D serves etc Equipment Racquets Usually long handled Short tennis racquets allowed length now increased to 25 inches Balls Tennis balls Sponge balls that make

6 a sound when they bounce Playing area Tennis court Under review: STS currently practice on badminton courts (see diagram above for playing area) with a lowered net. Can be played on a tennis court using just the service boxes. New rules are for orange courts which is a usual tennis court but a reduced baseline, and may have a lower net. Terminology Term Description Bounces allowed B1 players B2 players B3 players B4 players Totally, or almost totally blind - in tournaments players are required to wear a blindfold. Measures the clarity of vision and the range of peripheral (side) vision Measures the clarity of vision A relatively minor vision impairment. 3 bounces 2 bounces 2 bounces 1 bounce Holding the racquet (all examples are for right handers these just reverse the for left handers) There are lots of different holds, and each player will find for themselves the hold that gives most control.

7 Basic Grip: The grip depends on the type of shot to play. There are two basic types to choose from for both the backhand and the forehand. You will know you have it right when your racquet comes to feel as a natural extension of your arm. Forehand Grip: Known as the eastern grip, or shake-hands grip because as you take hold of the racquet it should feel as if you are shaking hands with another person. Curl your fingers around the grip near the base so your thumb and forefinger form a 'V' along the top right edge of the handle. This grip places the palm of the hand directly behind the handle. As you stroke the racquet through on the forehand side, it should feel almost as if your hand is hitting the ball. One hand backhand grip Place the palm of your hand on top of the handle then move the racquet inwards a quarter turn. The thumb should fall diagonally across the back of the grip, though some players wrap it all the way round. The inside of the thumb should touch the flat part of the handle. An easy way to find this grip is to put the racquet Advanced Forehand Grip This is used by most of the professionals because it is the best way to add top spin. Your thumb and forefinger form a 'V' pointing into the side of the handle. An easy way to find this grip is to simply put your racket on the floor and to pick it up by the grip. It will feel awkward at first but once mastered, it will allow you to return high bouncing balls with more power.

8 under your left arm with the handle sticking out forwards. Grab hold of the grip and pull the racquet out. You should then have the correct grip for a onehanded topspin backhand. Two hand backhand grip This grip gives more strength and control than a one-handed grip. It is also easier to hit top spin. However, it gives less reach and you need more time to prepare than with a single-handed shot. So you also need the server grip to play a sliced backhand. The simplest way to form the double-handed grip is to hold the racquet with with your favoured hand in the shake-hands forehand grip, then add the other hand with another forehand grip. Once you have mastered that, start to nudge your right hand more onto the top of the grip. This will allow you to hit with more power and spin. Your hands should be bunched up against each other, but not overlapping. Server Grip The grip for the serve and sliced backhand. It is known as the chopper grip, because it is the way you would hold an axe. It allows you to swing the racquet head faster when serving, which is how to generate power and spin. To find the grip, hold the racquet as if you were using the edge of the frame as an axe, that should be the correct grip. The V of your thumb and forefinger should be just to the left of the top of the grip. Exercises Warm up exercises for everyone: knees bent, twisting body left and right knees bent, shuffle left and right moving forwards and backwards towards the net (B1 players guided)

9 Practice exercises for B1 players: B1 players stand in a ring and throw the ball between them (bounce and catch). Probably particularly good for younger players. B1 player drops the ball by their side from head height and then hits it on the third bounce. Feeding the ball - throw the ball to the B1 player so by the 3 rd bounce it is just to the left or right of the B1 player who hits it. You can try throwing to the left 10 times, right 10 times. The above played with the net between you (use the racquet rather than throwing the ball). Both player stand mid court on respective sides of the net. Practice serves feedback to the B1 player where their ball is landing. The sighted player plays the return to try to keep the ball in play. Bouncing the ball off the wall sighted and B1 player standing alongside each other facing a wall. They bounce the ball against the wall. You can use the racquet to touch and control the ball before playing it against the wall. The next to hit the ball off the wall depends on the direction of the bounce: the sighted player needs to say mine and yours (with guidance when it is going to the left/right of the B1 player). This is quite motivating because if the sighted player can play balls missed by the B1 player it can be good exercise and practice for both players and the rallies can be quite long. Doubles games played with a sighted partner who calls mine, or guides by calling their B1 partner to where to strike the ball. Practice sessions for VI players 3 players on either side one at the front and two at the back (can be 2 and 2 on a tennis court). The player at the back serves and play continues. After each point, the players on both sides rotate position clockwise. This allows 6 people to practice on a single court. In pairs across a net play the ball from one to the other trying to keep the rally going. Each player can have several shots their side of the net before returning it this helps touch and control. Can mix up the above saying that each side of the net, they must play the ball with the forehand and the backhand (or vice versa) before it is returned. In the above exercises, 2 pairs can share a court using half each (left half/right half) and can mix up exercises by pairs standing diagonal to each

10 other so the ball crosses. Practice serving can use a target such as a rucksack (receiving player must stand by it to call Yes to Ready? ) Rallies that focus backhand. Rallies that focus forehand. Skills practice: Spins Topspin backspin sidespins Tactics
