It starts as love-all (0-0,) then if one person gets the point it is 15-love (you always say your score first. If that same person gets another point the score is 30-love (2-0,) and if the same person scores again the score is 40-love (4-0.) If you are tied you say the score, and then say "all." For example 30-all (2-2.) In ad-scoring the initial score is "deuce," if you win the point, you say "as-in." If you lose the point you say, "ad-out." If you are tied during ad, you will say "ad-all." I know it's a little confusing, you'll get used to it.

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 :)
