Similar in size to a beach volleyball court, 16m long x 8m wide.
The net is 1.7m in height.
Paddle bats (no strings) and Stage 2 (low compression "orange") balls are used.
Exactly the same scoring system is used as for regular tennis, except with the permanent use of no-Advantage, after Deuce. Plus there is no second service and no service let.
Playing the game
The game is predominantly played between doubles teams, although singles can be played on a narrower court (4.5m). Under and overarm serves are permitted and either member of the receiving team may return the service. A point is won if the ball hits the ground in the opposing court or if the opponents hit (or serve) the ball out or into the net.
