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 is a deuce?

A 'deuce' is a point in a tennis match where the points of both players in game are tied at 40-40. Instead of having to gain just one point to win the game, each players much win two consecutive points which will gon to 'Advantage' and then the point for the game.

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.

What does point mean in tennis?

Each rally is considered a point. The scoring in tennis goes like this: love-love love-fifteen fifteen-fifteen or love-thirty fifteen-thirty or love-forty thirty-thirty or the player that had forty in the score love-forty just won the match. If the score is thirty-forty and the player with thirty wins the point, the score is now forty-forty, or "deuce." To win the game from a score of deuce, a player must win two consecutive points. The scoring would go like this: forty-forty ("deuce") add-in (the player serving won the deuce point) or add-out (the player not serving won the deuce point). The score goes from deuce to add and back to deuce as long as it takes for one player to win two consecutive points. I hope that helps!

Which side should you serve from in tennis?

In tennis, you don't serve from just one side. For the first point of each game, you should serve from the deuce side (that's the right side if you're standing on the baseline). On the next point, you should serve from the ad side (that's the left side if you're standing on the baseline). You should continue alternating between the deuce side and ad side until the game is over and either the match is over, or you start another game from the deuce side.

How does a deuce work in tennis?

A deuce occurs when both players have earned three points in one game, making the score 40-40. When this happens, the game turns into a 'win by two' situation. First player to get up by two points takes the game. Say we are playing a match and I win the first point. As we go to serve the next point, the score is considered to be my ad. If you win the next point, the score goes back to deuce. If i win it, I receive the game.

In tennis what score does lave stand for?

I think you mean love. Love is 0. 15 is the first point. 30 is the second point. 40 is the third point. After that, the player gets the game unless each player gets to 40-40. Then, this is called deuce and then one of the players has to win both points after that. If not, they play until one of the players wins the two consecutive points after 40-40. (Ad-in if you win the point after 40-40 and then ad-out if you lose the point after 40-40)

Why do people say love when playing tennis?

It has been a tradition for well over one hundred years to use the term "love" to signify zero points, as in the statement, "You don't have any points, but you can still get some love!" (as part of tennis etiquette). The first point that is won, in a game of tennis gets you "15", the second point gets you "30" and the third point gets you "40". The fourth point is "game" (but you must win by two points, otherwise, the score goes by "deuce" for all even, or "advantage in" for the server, or "advantage out", meaning a point for the receiver).
