UTR Dingles 101
How It Works
- To play, you need four players, two balls, and one court. To start, players toss a coin to determine the feeding (“serving”) team. The two “serving” players on the same team feed cross-court rallies simultaneously and play out half-court points.
- When a cross-court singles point ends (by error or winner), the winning player calls out, “Dingles!” Using the ball that is still in play, the point immediately evolves into a normal full-court doubles point.
- Teams must win both the singles and doubles points to score a point. When a team wins both points, they get to feed (“serve”). Teammates change half-court sides only when they score a point on their serve. UTR Dingles score reporting is free.
