For example, if the Filipinos have a maximum of 20 players, then 8 representatives maybe of non-Filipino participants and 12 players are Filipino-American.

1. NO-AD GAMES
ASIAN GAMES TEAMTENNIS the scoring is no-ad. This means that the first team to capture four points (15, 30, 40, game or 1, 2, 3, game) wins the game.

2. MATCH FORMAT
This depends on how many teams participating:
· 3 Teams – Play Round Robin (RR); 1st pair wins 11 games wins; if ties at 10-all, a 7-point tiebreaker* will be played to determine the winner;
· 4 Teams – RR; 1st pair wins 9 games wins the match, similar to above, if tied at 8-8, play a 7-point tiebreaker;
· 5 Teams – RR; 1st pair wins 7 games wins the match; play a 7-point tiebreaker if a set is tied at 6:6.
· 6 Teams – Divide into two groups of 3 teams; last year’s winner/runner-up in two separate groups, other teams are randomly assigned. RR within group, use 1st pair wins 7 games format like above. Decide group 1st and 2nd place, follows by semi-final, and final, all uses 1st 7-games format.
*7-point tiebreaker: whoever wins 4 points first is the winner. The 1st server serves one form the add court, then each other player serves 2 starts from the deuce court and so on.
*Team switch sides every 4 games. No need to switch side during the 7-point tiebreaker.
3. TEAM WINNING AND TIE BREAKING
