Tennis - The new VASSS Points System
American Real Tennis champ Jimmy Van Alen insists that his new scoring system VASSS-tly improves the game! Anglia TV remain unconvinced.
From the collection of:
At the Cambridge University Lawn Tennis Club, Anglia TV speak to Jimmy Van Alen, an American Real Tennis champ and creator of a new scoring system for tennis matches. Aimed at energising the game, VASSS, the 'Van Alen Simplified Scoring System', was first developed in 1958, and advocates a sudden-death tie breaker to end prolonged sets and matches. Van Alen's scoring system did not wholly take over from the conventional scoring system, however the tie-break has remained.
