14.4 - Match Score

Each player/team receives credit for every point scored during the match. They earn two more points for each game they win, plus an additional 4 points if they win the match by scoring more overall points than their opponent. However, if each player/team wins a game and the scores are the same, then there is no match winner and the match is recorded as a “tie”. A “tie” matches result in each player/team earning 2 points for the game they won, plus 2 more points, i.e. one-half of the 4 additional points usually earned by the winner of the match.
