With the Sydney Harbor Bridge as a backdrop, Federer and Hewitt created history on a Sport Court Power Game™ Tennis Court when they played a friendly FAST4 TENNIS match on the Northern Broadwalk of the Sydney Opera House. The tennis legends are the first in the world to exchange rallies at the unique location, with the new format of tennis being seen today for the first time around the world.

FAST4 TENNIS is an innovative, new format of tennis developed by Tennis Australia. A fast format created for those who don’t have time or attention span to play traditional tennis. There are four rule variations from traditional tennis: no advantage scoring, no lets, a tiebreaker to be played at three games all, with the first player to win four games winning the set. The fundamentals of the game remain the same, but four innovative new rules ensure tennis matches are fast, competitive, exciting and can be completed in a shorter period of time.

A bonus too, it can be played anywhere and a PowerGame Tennis Court can allow offices and community centers the ability to install a flexible court surface for the new game.



FAST4 is tennis is those who don’t have time to play tennis.


It’s a fast and fun format to attract new and current players who want tennis to fit into their busy lifestyle. FAST4 does not replace traditional tennis, it is designed to complement it.


The FAST4 format has been developed and successfully piloted in Australia for three years at all levels, from Hot Shots to the Asia-Pacific Tennis League. Champions such as Pat Rafter, Nick Kyrgios, Sam Groth and Casey Dellacqua have all enjoyed playing this format, as have regular club players.


FAST4 features just four rule variations, resulting in more continuous play and quicker game and match time:

– Play lets
– No AD scoring
– Tiebreaker at three games all
– The first to four games wins
