What is the height of a table tennis net?

Most tournaments employ a tie-break when game score is 6-6 in any set. There are a few tournaments, namely the AUS open, French open, Wimbledon, Davis Cup that doesn't have a fifth set tie-breaker.

This means that a tie-break can be used to decide the set in Sets 1-4 but if the match goes to 5th and score is 6-6, you cannot play a tie-break but must instead play on until a player wins by two games!
Thus scores can go up to 17-19, 18-20.
In those cases, it's like playing 7 sets of tennis!

GET THIS!: before the tie break was invented, every set must be played until player wins by 2 or more games after reaching 6! so a score can be such: 6-4, 8-10, 5-7, 8-6, 11-9
