  1. TEAM MAKEUP
  1. SCORING
  1. GAME PLAY

*At the beginning of each new game only one partner on the serving team has the opportunity to serve before faulting, after which the service passes to the receiving team.

*If a point is scored, the server switches sides and the server initiates the next serve from the left-hand court.

*When the first server loses the serve, the partner then serves from their correct side of the court (except for the first service sequence of the game)

*The second server continues serving until their team commits a fault and loses the serve to the opposing team.

*Once the service goes to the opposition, the first serve is from the right hand court and both players on that team have the opportunity to serve and score points until their team commits two faults.

  1. Second Bounce- ball bounces on same side 2 times
  2. Out of Bounds- ball lands outside the marked boundaries
  3. Net- ball does not clear the net
