Points system in americano and mexicano

Every match has a fixed number of points. The number of points per match is decided before starting the tournament. In a typical tournament the number of points per match is 16 or 32. Although many other values are valid too - for instance 31 if you want to avoid draws.

In a match with 16 points, players 1 and 2 from team A are facing players 3 and 4 from team B. Player 1 serves four times before player 3 from the opposite team serves four times, and so on. The result of the match could be anything from 16‑0 to 8‑8. If the result is 10‑6, players 1 and 2 from team A get 10 points, and players 3 and 4 from team B get 6 points.

All points you earn in every match count towards your individual score. The winner is the player with most points after all matches.
