To a beginner of the greatest game (tennis), the rules and court structure can seem a bit daunting. Take the Ad and Deuce courts. Just what does that mean?
When you are at the baseline and looking at the net on the hash mark, the deuce court is your right side of the court. The ad court is the left side of the court. You define what’s left and right by what’s left and right of the center hash mark.
You also begin serving on the deuce side. When you’re on an even number of points played (15 all, 40-15, 30 all, whatever), you’re always on the deuce side. When you’re on an odd number of points played, you’re on the ad side (15-0, 30-15, 40-0, etc.).
Don’t forget that the spring league registration is still open. Come out and play with us.
