Serving Rotation

 Serving Rotation

Starting the game

A coin toss is what is first used to determine which team will begin to serve during the first set of the match.  The winners of the coin toss either chooses to serve or to receive which is choice 1 or they choose 2 and decide which court they want to start on. The losers of the coin toss make the second choice. For the second set the losers get to chose first and the winners make the second choice. For the third set they have a new coin toss. The teams submit their serving rotation after the coin toss and they will follow that for the rest of the match.

Singles

Every time a rally is scored a point iis awarded whether it is to the serving side or the non-serving side. On even points you serve from right, on odd serving points you serve from the left. You MUST serve diagonal.

Doubles

Doubles can be more difficult at times to remember from which side and who will serve as you are now with two players. First, the same two rules from singles apply:

- Score a point each time you win a rally

- Even score: you serve from the right, Odd score/; you serve from the left.

The only difference is that if you win your serve (meaning if you score a point after you serve) you serve again but move to the other box (so players switch places). That is the only time you switch places!
