In singles, the server stands in their right service court when their score is even, and in her/his left service court when her/his score is odd. In doubles, if the serving side wins a rally, the same player continues to serve, but he/she changes service courts so that she/he serves to a different opponent each time. If the opponents win the rally and their new score is even, the player in the right service court serves; if odd, the player in the left service court serves. The players' service courts are determined by their positions at the start of the previous rally, not by where they were standing at the end of the rally. If the score reaches 20-all, then the game continues until one side gains a two point lead (such as 24-22), up to a maximum of 30 points (30-29 is a winning score).

Forehand and Backhand Shots All strokes can be played either forehand or backhand . A player's forehand side is the same side as their playing hand: fora right-handed player, the forehand side is their right side and the backhand side is their left side. Players frequently play certain strokes on the forehand side with a backhand hitting action, and viceversa.

Stance: your feet a little more than shoulder- width apart. Your weight should be shifted forwards a little, with your knees slightly bent. Racket carriage: bring your racket up!, your racket should be held out in front of you, and away from your body.
