One-on-One Doubles can be played in both tournament and league format.

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.
Serving and Returning Players will be awarded TWO POINTS for a winning volley, half- volley and overhead that the opponent cannot touch/reach.

"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
