Match Tiebreak (ten points, win by two) When the score in an individual match is one set all, a Match Tiebreak shall be played in lieu of a third set. This tiebreak game replaces the deciding final set. The player/team who first wins ten points (win by two) shall win this match tiebreak and the match. If the score goes to 9 -9 and beyond, players continue to play until there is a winning margin of two points (i.e. 11-9, 12-10, 15-13, etc.)

Two-minute rest between the first and second set and between the second and third set Match Tiebreak.

Coman Tiebreak procedures apply to all tiebreak sets including the Match Tiebreaker. First team serves one time, followed by two serves for each team thereafter. Change sides after the first serve and then after every four points thereafter. (Note: Easy way to remember in doubles is that each player will serve from the same side.)

The match format for Sectionals (and Nationals) is two singles and three doubles lines. Eight players are needed for each match.
