At the End of Each Game

What the ITTO saysWhat this looks like in practiceFurther advice / good practice / additional considerations
“Game” must always be called immediately after the final rally of each game has ended, regardless of applause. This call of “Game” is the start of the interval between games.Start your stopwatch as soon as the final rally ends, unless the match has ended with that game.Even when the final rally means the end of the match, the umpire must still call “Game” to indicate that the game in question has ended (and therefore the match has been won). Without the call of “Game”, there is no clear indication that the game/match has been won.
After the first game ends, call…“First game won by…[name(s) of player(s), or member (in a team tournament)] … [score]”
After the second game ends,
call…
“Second game won by…[name(s) of player(s), or member (in a team tournament)] …[score]; one game all.”This applies if it is the second of three games. If the match is ending with this second and final game, see immediately below (“If a game wins the match…”).
If a game wins the match, the umpire shall call…“Match won by…[name(s) of player(s), or member (in a team tournament)] …[scores].”
In the intervals between games, at 100 seconds, call…“[Court…] 20 seconds”. Repeat the call.
During these intervals, after the players have changed ends, each side may be joined on the court by no more than two accredited coaches. They must leave the court when the umpire calls “20 seconds”.(As explained previously around intervals)(As explained previously around intervals)
To start the second game, call…“Second game. Love all; play.”Same indications as regarding initial announcement – clearly, with pauses
When there is a third game, call…“Final game. Love all; play.”(Same)
