Switch from Side-out Scoring
Introduced in 1998
Game played to 15
Point is only scored if your team is serving
Games can take a long time
Teams could serve more aggressively, not punished for errors
It became a best of 5 where the first 4 sets were played to 25 and the fifth set being to 15
More emphasis on limiting errors
Point is given on every play

Reasons for the Switch
Increased the speed of the game
Reduced the difference in time between short games and long games, making it easier to broadcast games
Easier to predict the amount of time a set will take
Increased interest in a faster-paced game
