touchtennis is easy to pick up but impossible to put down – the closest thing to 5 a-side for tennis, played on a smaller court, with 21” rackets and foam balls and can be played on any flat space, indoors or outside. The specifically designed ball and unique rules, creates a level playing field whereby different abilities can enjoy playing together.
touchtennis is intended for Adults 16+ though its versatility means everyone can have a go. The touchtennis tour (16+), where players play for rankings and prize money has grown from 8 players in 2007, to 10,000 players participating across the tour and recreational play in 23 countries today.
Tennis scoring but ‘sudden death on every deuce point’ with receiver to choose side Serving = overarm or underarm and the serve may not be volleyed back by the returner. One serve only ‘If you throw it you must hit it’ On throwing the ball up to serve, the server must hit it – letting it drop/catching it will result in loss of point. Sets are to 4 games, must win by 2 clear. If the score is 4-4, a tie break to 5 points will take place. No let rule – if the ball clips the net and lands in correct service box, the ball counts as ‘in play’.
