Tennis is a game played on a rectangular court by either two players (singles) or four (doubles).
In Tennis Clash it is only possible to play a singles match, which means there will only be two players on either side of the court. In this particular style of Tennis, players use the narrower singles court.

Players stand on opposite sides of a net and use a stringed racket to hit a ball back and forth to each other. Each player has a maximum of one bounce after it has been hit by their opponent to return the ball over the net and within the boundaries of the court. Once a player fails to do any of these things, the opponent wins a point!

The aim is to win enough points to win a set and enough sets to win a match. The first person to win six games wins a set. Matches are usually the best of three or the best of five sets.

However, on Tennis Clash, matches are shorter than the actual sport. Matches are not composed by games or sets. You only need to win enough points to win a whole match!

Serve

The player who plays the ball first is the server and the person who returns it is the receiver.

In Tennis Clash, a random player will serve the first time. After that, each player will serve twice until the match ends.

The server is allowed two chances to land their ball into the service box. The first attempt is known as the first service. Failing the first service leads to the second service. Failing the second service results in the loss of the point - also known as a double fault.

The player serves on the right side of the court at the beginning of each point, with the goal of serving the ball into the diagonal service box. If the serve lands in the correct service box, play can continue!
