Intramural tennis is typically played “no-ad.” This means there is no deuce and scoring is “0-15-30-40-Game.” This is used to speed up the matches. Additionally, while most programs enforce the “win by two” adage, cap limits on games per set are generally added (usually between 8-12 games).
While court monitors are sometimes used, some intramural programs offer tennis on a “play-by-date” system. In this instance, participants are given a set of dates by which to play each match. The matches are played at the participants’ convenience and both participants are required to report the scores to the intramural department.
