Rule Change: We added 'Fast Tennis' / Next Gen tennis format as a playing format
Staying on the cutting edge of good tennis modifications we're now allowing players to play the Fast Tennis format as a valid league match.
This comes by many names: NextGen Format is another one of them. This format keeps even a full match to no more than 1 hour and 30 minutes. First to 4 games, 3 set format with No ad scoring. Play 7 point tie-breakers at 3-3. At deuce the next point is a golden point with the receiver having choice of side.
Tennis League Network used this format at the 2018 National Championship and it was a raving success. The format has several tension points throughout the match in comparison to a 10 game pro set. Basically all 3 sets can be contested. Leading to a lot of important points throughout the shorter match. Of course a 4-0, 4-0 double bagel could end super quick but maybe that's a good thing.

I think this is a great addition. It will be interesting to see how often it's used. I can think of lots of times I would like to have been able to do this. Hope it's a success and is kept as part of the program.
