Kiawah Island

Handicapped 2 Day Tennis Tournament

Kiawah is the South Carolina tennis resort that outperforms the rest. Offering 22 tennis courts, including ten new Har-Tru clay courts, all tucked into the resort’s stunning surroundings and bordered by fragrant oleander, rustling palmettos, swaying pampas grass and vibrant flowers.

Compete in a spirited handicapped tennis tournament spread out over four days. This unique tennis format allows all genders and levels to – like golf – show up to the court and be evenly matched. 

  • Tennis will be a handicapped tournament open to men and women.
  • Each player will compete in an abridged set, first to win 4 games, no-add scoring. Each game begins with a handicapped score determined by the gap in NTRP rating. For example, if a 5.0 player competes against a 4.0 player, the 5.0 player will start the game down Love to 30. At 3-3 in games,  one player will spin the racket and the winner of the spin decides to serve or receive for a final game, and the winner of the final game wins the match.
  • When a man competes against a woman, the woman may elect to take an additional 15 point advantage. If the gap in the rating is more than 3 points, the stronger player will begin at a negative score, for example, 40 to minus 15.
  • Here is a chart for reference where a male 5.0 player plays against a weaker male player and also against a weaker female player:
