What Is A Set In A Tennis Match? Sets are part of the scoring system in tennis. When a player/team wins a certain number of points, they win a game. When they win a certain number of games, they win the set. And when they win a certain number of sets, they win the match. Once that happens, the competition is over.
Games, in contrast to points, are counted as 1, 2, 3… Winning a Set. The first person to win six games, wins a set, but this has to be by a margin of 2 games.
