No Service Let Rule

At Tennis Manitoba junior tournaments for 2018, service lets will not be played: if the serve hits the net and goes into the correct service box, the ball will be in play. The rule change aims to reduce disputes in junior matches, which are largely played without a chair umpire, and is consistent with the ATP Next Generation 21 & under event.

The “no service let” rule will be implemented by Tennis Canada at the National Junior events this summer and will be in effect at all ITF Junior events worldwide.
