Tennis and its scoring system

Tennis is played with a racket to strike a ball over the net. The ball can bounce once or be returned while still in the air. There are singles and doubles matches when one player plays against each other or two players (same gender or different gender) against two opponents on the other side of the court. The size of each side of the court is 39ft long by 27ft wide for singles and 39ft by 36ft wide for doubles.

The scoring system starts with game, set then match. Each game has four points. Each point has different value:

  1. The first point in a game is called 15
  2. The second point is 30
  3. The third point is 40
