3. MATCH TIE-BREAK (10 POINTS) When the score in a match is one set all, or two sets all in best of five sets matches, one tie-break game shall be played to decide the match. This tie-break game replaces the deciding final set.


The player/team who first wins ten points shall win this match tie-break and the match provided there is a margin of two points over the opponent(s).


Note: When using the match tie-break to replace the final set:  the original order of service continues. (Rules 5 and 14)


 in doubles, the order of serving and receiving within the team may be altered, as in the beginning of each set. (Rules 14 and 15)


 before the start of the match tie-break there shall be a 120 seconds set break.


 balls should not be changed before the start of the match tie-break even if a ball change is due.


CHANGE OF ENDS (Rule 10): This alternative to the change of ends sequence in a tie-break game may be used.


During a tie-break game, players shall change ends after the first point and thereafter after every four points.


THE LET DURING A SERVICE (Rule 22): This alternative is play without the service let in Rule 22 a. It means that a serve that touches the net, strap or band, is in play. (This alternative is commonly known as the "no let rule").
