View Full Version : The Tennis Game- Rules and Applications

Aug 27th, 2005, 03:54 AM
http://www.justteeshirts.co.uk/images/misc/bullet_tshirt.gif Everything, including the name, is going to be changed in SAWTA. (This includes the rankings, profiles, arena of champions, calendar, e.t.c). Sorry to those dedicated players such as ClaudiaZ, ma26188, El_Gaucho, Chevina, honey_b_fly_15, QuickyMonster, Samsonsam, e.t.c.

From now on, here are the new rules:

http://www.justteeshirts.co.uk/images/misc/bullet_tshirt.gif Choose one player ranked between 50 and 300 (the player can't be retired).
http://www.justteeshirts.co.uk/images/misc/bullet_tshirt.gif There is a limit to 5 players per country.

http://www.justteeshirts.co.uk/images/misc/bullet_tshirt.gif Here is how you send in points:
Divide 150 points into the following 13 categories:
Mental Strength:
Ball Placement:
Crowd Cheer:
Net Dash:

http://www.justteeshirts.co.uk/images/misc/bullet_tshirt.gif To determine who wins a game, I randomly select a category and whoever has the most points in the category wins the game. I do the same until the set is completed. However, I cannot select the same category if I have already used it in that set. There are 13 categories so all 13 categories could be selected if the game score reaches 6-6.
http://www.justteeshirts.co.uk/images/misc/bullet_tshirt.gif You may send in new points each week.
http://www.justteeshirts.co.uk/images/misc/bullet_tshirt.gif There will be no doubles, only mixed doubles. You can choose any mixed doubles player as long as he is ranked.
http://www.justteeshirts.co.uk/images/misc/bullet_tshirt.gif The tournaments will be based on the 2005 WTA Tour calender.
http://www.justteeshirts.co.uk/images/misc/bullet_tshirt.gif The new name of the game will be called 'The Tennis Game'.
http://www.justteeshirts.co.uk/images/misc/bullet_tshirt.gif Please sign up here if you would like to play!

I hope this encourages more people join. :wavey:
The Tennis Game take over from the current game 'SAWTA' in the SAWTA forum.
