What is American Doubles?

American Doubles is a style of competition where you enter as a single player, and get matched with different partners.
So every match, you'll play with a different partner!
At the end of the tournament, the player who has won the most games, wins.

For this tournament, you'll be playing 20 minute matches, up to however many games you are able to complete before time is up.
If you are midway through a game when time is up, the pair with the most points wins that game.
If both pairs have equal points when time is up, treat it as a deuce.
All deuces are sudden death, so whoever wins the point, wins that game.
