of their team’s order of service, which shall be followed throughout the match. The
order of serve may be changed between games, provided that the referee has been verbally
notified before the first serve of the new game. At the beginning of each game, when

safety zone before the ball passes the short line, the server loses service. (c) Changes
of Serve. In doubles, the side is retired when both partners have lost service, except
that the team which serves first at the beginning of each game loses the serve when
the first server is retired.
