The Third Game of Tennis
One-on-One Doubles® Tennis is the first alternative, competitive
format to singles and doubles since the inception of the game in the 1870s.
One-on-One Doubles can be played in both tournament and league format.
One-on-One Doubles® Tennis, the half-court, serve-and-volley Singles game played on the Doubles court, is a match between two players. There is a divisible
line drawn through the middle of the court from the center service
line to the middle of the baseline. On clay, one can use a regular
court liner to make this divisible line through the middle. On hard
courts, one can use chalk or white athletic/trainers' tape to mark
off the middle line. Players alternate points from the deuce court to the ad court. All points are played crosscourt with the alley included.
Players must serve and volley on both first and second serves (serve and volley is OPTIONAL for players 60 years and up). Half-volleys are permitted. The returner can stay back or come into the net. MORE->

"I got hooked on One on One Doubles after trying it once. First of all, I think it is an excellent game for anyone trying to become a better doubles player.
Having said that, I also feel it would be a wonderful way for juniors, or any player, to develop a solid serve and volley game, to be added to the baseline game most juniors play today.
Playing in the One on One Doubles Pro Tournament was also a great experience for me. Great atmosphere and fun tennis!. Having slowed down a step or two in the last couple of years, it was great way to play competitive tennis without all the running."
- Mikael Pernfors, 1986 French Open Finalist; ATP Ranking of #10 in 1986
