### How do they start scoring in Tennis and Badminton?

Tennis and badminton are actually very different. They don't score the same way. In tennis, it starts with love, 15, 30, 45, deuce or game. You always say your score first, then the opponent's. Love love, fifteen love, thirty love, fourty-five love. Deuce. Add in, add out. Deuce in when both sides have fourty-five (three points) If you play with add (or advantage) then you have to win two more points after reaching deuce. If you don't play with add, then after reaching deuce, you only have to win one more point. In badminton, you play to 21, and you score with normal scoring. 0,0 you would start with, whoever gets the point has a new score of 1. Much less weird :)

### What are some tennis facts?

When you play tennis the score is love (0), 15, 30, 40, won. If both players are at 40 it is called deuce. Once you are at that stage the next person that gets a point gets advantage you only need one point the win once you are at advantige and if the other team gets the point you are back at deuce. There is no contact and was first played in the 19th century. you get a point by the other team hitting the ball out, not hitting it over the net, or the other team doesn't serve it right the first 2 tries.

### Why is tennis scored the way it is?

Tennis scoring goes 15, 30, 40. You have to win by more than two points or it is a deuce. Then , whoever gets the next point, has an advantage. When you get another point right after, you've won the round. If not, the score goes back to deuce. That is the first game. When you've done it twice, it is called a set. On the third and final time, it is called a match. If you have won at least two out of three rounds, you've won the entire game. It's very confusing. This scoring system came from France. It is said to come from the fact that a clock face was used on court, with a quarter move of the hand to indicate a score of fifteen, thirty, and forty-five. When the hand moved to sixty, the game was over.With regard to when the game is at deuce: when the game reaches the tie score of 40-40, it is properly referred to as "40-40". Only after the game returns to a tie score from someone having the advantage point, should the game be referred to as being at "deuce". Some unschooled tennis players will refer to a match at 30-30 as deuce. While 30-30, or 40-40 is the equilavalent of deuce, it is not properly referred to as deuce.
