Badminton and Tennis

In Badminton:- If the score reaches 20-20, the game will be “deuce”. This means that either one side must lead by 2 points to win the game.

In Tennis:- The scoring system of tennis is somewhat arcane and the origins are not well understood. It is likely tennis derives from game played in medieval France in which a clock face was used to keep score.
