When to play a Tie Break

A reminder to players in Pennant through to section 4, that a 12 point tie break is to be played when the score is 5 games all. (Note a 12 point tie break is the name given to the normal tennis tie break played universally.  The first player to win seven points by a margin of at least two is awarded the set. If the score reaches 6-6, the tiebreaker continues until a player has won by a margin of two points.).

Refer to By-Law 6.2. Players in Section 5-8 play all sets to four with the advantage service being played throughout.
