The server must remain in the service zone until the served ball passes the short line. Violations are called "Foot Faults." Manner - A serve is commenced by bouncing the ball on the floor in the service zone, and on the first bounce the ball is struck by the server's racket so that it hits the front wall and on the rebound hits the floor back of the abort line, either with or without touching one of the side walls. Readiness - Serves shall not be made until the receiving side is ready, or the referee has called "Players ready!" Rule 2 - SERVE (Doubles) Server - At the beginning of each game in doubles, each side shall inform the referee of the order of service, which order shall be followed throughout the game. Only the first server serves the first time up and then continues to serve first throughout the game. When the server is out, the side is out. Thereafter both players on each side shall occur until a hand-out occurs. It is not necessary for the server to alternate serves to the opponents.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
