3 tennis rules that must be changed
Every year the National Football League rules committee meets and makes changes to the game.
Rutgers and Princeton played a college soccer football game, the first ever, November 6. The game uses a variation of London Football Association rules. During the next seven years, rugby gained favor with the major eastern schools over soccer, and modern football began to develop from rugby.
Since the first real change in football took place in 1869 changes have been made in every year during
the football meetings each year.
It is time for tennis to make a few changes with some new rules. 3 of them i am recommending.
Tennis Scoring System
Tennis Rule Change #1
1. Ball toss on the serve – i sometimes play tennis with players who on their serve toss the ball and catch it 3-4 times before hitting it.
Tennis Serving Rules
The 2nd tennis rule change:
2. Scoring system – why does it need to be so confusing with 15,30,40, etc. It really shoud be just 1,2,3 then game. You still need to win a game by 2 points but not with the confusion of an old scoring system that is difficult to explain to a beginner.
The 3rd tennis rule change
3. USTA rating system – the rating system needs a complete overhaul. There definitely needs to be separate ratings for Singles AND Doubles. A lot of singles players are simply not good at doubles strategies and vice versa.
An Englishman, Major Walter C. Wingfield, invented lawn tennis in 1873 and first played it at a garden party in Wales. Called “Sphairistiké” [ by its inventor, the early game of tennis was played on an hourglass-shaped court, widest at the baselines and narrowest at the net.
The ITF announced that its new rule for ten-and-under tennis competition came into worldwide effect today. The rule states that ten-and-under competitions can no longer be played using the much used yellow tennis ball, with the mandatory use of slower ‘red’, ‘orange’ or ‘green’ balls on the appropriate size court.
The new ITF rule was approved at the 2010 ITF AGM in Washington. This was only the fifth time the ITF Rules of Tennis have been changed since the history of the sport, following on from the foot fault rule, introduction of the tiebreak, introduction of set breaks and the new optional scoring methods that i suggest..
