You might want to consider running a Triples event. I recently ran Triples
at my club for the first time and it was a great success. Beforehand I was a
little concerned that with three-a-side the court would be too crowded and
maybe even a little dangerous. However, I needn't have worried because
everybody had a good time and the tennis was both highly entertaining and
competitive. Rallies are often quite long and by the end of the night the
teams had really come to grips with the best tactics to use. We used a
round robin format and kept the matches short.

A key rule is that one member of the receiving team receives serve for an
entire game, both in the deuce and ad courts. The other two players can
stand anywhere. Each player serves a game in rotation but I also made it a
rule that the strongest player on each side had to serve, and receive,
against the strongest player on the other side. This ensured that games were
fairly even and also meant that the sides can be made up of players with
quite diverse skills.

I've documented some guidelines on my Double Happy software site at

I don't know if Triples is played anywhere in any sort of organized fashion
but it merits a look and we will certainly do it again.

Go well
