About Tie Break Tens

Tie Break Tens is a quick-fire version of tennis that anyone can play. Unlike conventional tennis matches, Tie Break Tens matches are comprised solely of tie breaks – no games, no sets, just exhilarating ten- point breakers in which every point counts.

The Tie Break Tens series sees world-class players going head to head in fast-paced, action-packed knock out tournaments at prestigious venues around the globe for huge winner-takes-all prizes. So far, Tie Break Tens has visited London, Vienna, Madrid, Melbourne, New York, Dubai and Indian Wells, featuring players such as Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Dominic Thiem, Andy Murray, Serena Williams and Simona Halep.

In 2018, Tie Break Tens launched their grass roots initiative, the TB10 Challenger & TB10 Play, with the key aim of driving participation in tennis by encouraging people to get out there and play. So far tournaments have been run throughout the UK and also across New York City, giving thousands of kids the opportunity to pick up a racket and try out the format.
