About the Event

What is touchtennis?

Touchtennis is played on a small court similar to a badminton court. Using small rackets and a special touchtennis ball it's all about out-manoeuvring your opponent.

How do you play?

Scoring is very similar to tennis but see below for the a few differences.

  • Only ONE serve is permitted in touchtennis. A serve is still not volleyed back by the returner.
  • Once the server tosses the ball upward to serve then that player is obliged to hit it. You throw it, HIT IT! Or you lose one of your serves
  • No Let Rule – if the ball clips the net and then lands in the correct service box (diagonal to the server) then that ball is considered "in play"
  • If your serve hits your opponent without bouncing then it is a fault UNLESS they are touching the service line or are inside the service box when the ball hits them in which case the server wins the point.
  • If the racquet leaves your hand in order to make a shot, then that shot will still count so long as your racquet does not fly over the net on to your opponents side of the court;
  • If once you are disarmed and you have made a shot with your racquet throw, then you may continue that rally with your body parts! Note though, that you MUST have made the shot prior to this with a racquet that was NOT in your hand and thrown to make it
  • Grunting – it is recommended that you grunt during play as it is known to distract your opponent!
