Case 1: Do both players/teams have the right to new choices if the warm-up is stopped and the players leave the court? Decision: Yes. The result of the original toss stands, but new choices may be made by both players/teams.


10. CHANGE OF ENDS The players shall change ends at the end of the first, third and every subsequent odd game of each set. The players shall also change ends at the end of each set unless the total number of games in that set is even, in which case the players change ends at the end of the first game of the next set. During a tie-break game, players shall change ends after every six points.


Additional approved alternative procedures can be found in Appendix IV. 11. BALL IN PLAY


Unless a fault or a let is called, the ball is in play from the moment the server hits the ball, and remains in play until the point is decided.


12. BALL TOUCHES A LINE If a ball touches a line, it is regarded as touching the court bounded by that line.


13. BALL TOUCHES A PERMANENT FIXTURE If the ball in play touches a permanent fixture after it has hit the correct court, the player who hit the ball wins the point. If the ball in play touches a permanent fixture before it hits the ground, the player who hit the ball loses the point.


14. ORDER OF SERVICE At the end of each standard game, the receiver shall become the server and the server shall become the receiver for the next game. In doubles, the team due to serve in the first game of each set shall decide which player shall serve for that game. Similarly, before the second game starts, their opponents shall decide which player shall serve for that game. The partner of the player who served in the first game shall serve in the third game and the partner of the player who served in the second game shall serve in the fourth game. This rotation shall continue until the end of the set.


15. ORDER OF RECEIVING IN DOUBLES The team which is due to receive in the first game of a set shall decide which player shall receive the first point in the game. Similarly, before the second game starts, their opponents shall decide which player shall receive the first point of that game. The player who was the receiver’s partner for the first point of the game shall receive the second point and this rotation shall continue until the end of the game and the set.


After the receiver has returned the ball, either player in a team can hit the ball. Case 1: Is one member of a doubles team allowed to play alone against the opponents? Decision: No.
