How To Play

Each team consists of 3 players. These 3 players are your team the entire tournament. Each game has 3 versus 3 players. A feeder feeds a ball to one side of the Tennis court to start the point. After every point, each player rotates counter clockwise. At 11 points, the players swap sides. This gives each team a chance at the feed side. The goal is to be first to 21 points (win by 2).

It is a very quick paced game to 21. The points are moving fast. Once the ball is fed into play, all players can move anywhere on the court. There are no restrictions on who can take what shot or where you stand on your side of the court. Take a look at the video example to see first-hand triples play.
