It's really annoying to play a great point and not get credit for it due to confusion on the score. I believe, The Code says to call out the score before each point. I'm all for that!!! I think many rec/club players, play head games or use gamesmanship with the score. After a great energetic point, with many hits, it's easy to get literally turned around and not know where you stand anymore. I always (well, almost always) call out the score before each point. It just increases the odds that somebody, especially when playing doubles, will remember the score. Invariably, I find it's the player who doesn't call out the score on a consistent basis, is the one who is ALWAYS questioning it. I make it a point to remember the score and call it out at least when I'm serving. If others would do the same things would be just peachy. I feel some players consciously "game" score keeping and some do it unconsciously, after years of developing bad habits. There are those players who ONLY call the score when they are UP, especially at 40-15. Personally, I sometimes don't call it out at 40-love or 40-15, feeling it may be some bad Karma or hubristic to embarrass my opponents shouting-out a big lead. There are some who never call the score! I admire them if they can keep it accurately, BUT, if they keep screwing it up, I begin hating them and start calling it out for them. This may annoy them and goad them into doing the right thing, calling it out themselves. If I get really annoyed with "non score caller outters", I'll time my call to coincide with their ball-toss and admit, this is a bit of gamesmanship of my own, but only after they have thoroughly annoyed me first. For the time being, I'm foregoing buying a score-keeping watch. One reason being, having to remember to use it and also finding it somewhat distracting and annoying watching someone constantly pressing on their wrist. Do any TT'ers have any tips on dealing with "score-keeper/non-score keeper" gamers, to help keep them honest or to do their job of keeping the score too?
