Tie Break Tens

Tie Break Tens is a type of tennis in which only tie-break matches are played. The first player to get 10 points and lead by a margin of two, wins.

It’s basically a pick-up game to ten, like you might play with a friend.

Tie Break Tens tournaments have been played in London, Vienna, Madrid, and Melbourne. Now it’s NYC’s turn.
