All matches use the Thirty 30 Scoring System.


Thirty30 (T30) Tennis

The future of tennis requires having alternative shorter faster-paced scoring formats to help encourage the next generation of players and fans and investors.

‘Thirty30’ tennis is the alternative shorter scoring method to – Fast4 (‘sets to 4 games (T-B at 3-3) + No Ads (sudden-death deuce)’) and is also an alternative to the “10-point Match Tie-Break” (Tie Break Tens) and the “Ultimate Tennis Showdown” (UTS) ‘4 quarters of timed tie-break-like tennis’ scoring format.

The Rules of Thirty30 are identical to traditional tennis except:

(1) EVERY ‘SHORT GAME’ starts at ’30-all’ i.e. ‘30-30’ – announced “Thirty-Thirty” – Thirty30 – the clue is in the name!

(2) At 6 games all, a ‘short set tie-break’ is played, i.e. first to 5 points with a ‘sudden death’ point at 4-4.

(3) Players serve alternative games and change of ends is initially after the first two games then after every four games resulting in less change of ends per set by a factor of two ensuring more efficient playing time.

Players alternate who serves first at the start of each set.

A set takes no longer than 20 minutes to complete with a best-of-3-sets match taking no longer than 60 minutes. (Best of 5 sets in 90 minutes).

Thirty30 (T30) can be described as the tennis equivalent of cricket’s shorter and more exciting Twenty20 (T20) format.

Thirty30 tennis is suitable for all ages and all levels of play including adults.

Youngsters especially like the shorter faster-paced and more exciting matches.

Thirty30 tennis = shorter matches = more matches = more opponents = more entertaining + more fun!

Great for Events, Competitions, Exhibitions, Pro-Ams, etc.

There are 280+ Testimonials on the Thirty30 website.

Testimonial #270

“Sounds like a great concept. I have used similar scoring at times in practice – so that players arrive at the critical ‘pressure points’ more quickly and frequently. But I hadn’t considered this format for competitions – would be quite exciting!”

Thirty30 Tennis – Still FEELS, LOOKS & SOUNDS like traditional tennis and Where EVERY Point REALLY Counts!


USATT will hold “unsanctioned” tournaments that use the Thirty30 scoring format. 

These tournaments will not be a part of the traditional USATT Pro Circuit due to its short scoring format.

These tournaments will prepare players for the “Big Points” and pressure moments as well.  

Thirty30 Vision & Mission, Overview 

Thirty 30 Tennis


Vision And Mission And Overview

• Our goals and objectives are to create for tennis what the IPL Cricket has done for cricket. 

  • We are going to be the T30 of tennis, and do it on a global basis.

• We are doing this in two structures: Physical Competitions and Virtual Reality. 

For Virtual Reality we are in a joint venture with VRML Tennis Esports. 

Whatever we create for the physical will be done in virtual on the VRML platform.

• We have created a unique and innovative global competition model, using the Thirty30 Tennis scoring format and a structure similar to the T20 IPL Cricket.

• There will have a pyramid structure with Top Professional Teams at the top going to Inter Continental, Country, City, and Club. 

There will be Junior and Adult identical models.

• The competition structure will be mixed gender based teams in a League and knockout format. We will add a wheelchair component as well.

• There will be substantial prize money in all competitions.

• We also want to introduce a unique and innovative ownership model whereby the players will be able to have a significant role in the running of the whole concept which we have called T30TI to be known in the future as T30.

• There will also be a meaningful role for coaches, and the introduction of The Martial Art Way of Tennis, that will not only create a paradigm shift in the game, but will take the game both long and short into a new dimension and give coaches and teachers an opportunity to create new meaning and understanding to coaching life and business.

• We want to unlock the game at all levels, especially from the junior level. We want it to be affordable and believe the children are our future and they get the necessary skills to be that future whether that be in the Thirty30 format or the traditional game, and also give skills for life.

• The IPL cricket concept has done more for that sport than in any other sport, we want to bring that opportunity to tennis, and let it be shared with all who would like to participate in a positive way to create a better and more equitable sport set against the highest ethical and moral standards.

THIRTY30 Tennis

What is it?

Thirty30 Tennis is a shortened format of tennis where every point counts and is the tennis equivalent of the Twenty20 format of cricket.

Thirty30 Tennis produces shorter, faster-paced more dynamic matches that still FEEL, LOOK and SOUND like traditional matches.

Thirty30 Tennis takes away the “dead time” during matches and makes more points matter quicker.

Thirty30 spices up tennis and a set is completed in around 20 minutes on average.

This allows players to play many different opponents and is a perfect set up for round robin competitions

The fundamentals of tennis remain the same and matches are:

• of a higher intensity

• more dynamic   

• ultra-competitive

• extremely exciting

Block chain structure with NFTs or traditional money

Virtual Reality Platform

We are in a joint venture with VRML Tennis Esports. 

Whatever we create for the physical will be done in virtual on the VRML platform.


Initially this platform will be used as a marketing tool with the Thirty30 format being adapted from an existing game. Future opportunities may include a unique Thirty30 game.


This is an integral part of the Infinity Sports Entertainment Group which will have its own tennis management, training, media and wellness components.

Every traditional sport needs to change and look for new ways to make the game more appealing to today’s players or potential players. Thirty30 looks like a system which will appeal to players and offers shorter and more intense matches. Alternative forms of tennis are needed for sure and Mark’s system seems to be a winner.
