CHANGE OF ENDS
Team Event (men and women): Players shall change ends:
– at the end of the first game;
– at the end of the second game,
– if there is to be a third game; and in the third game when a side first scores 11 points.
Mixed Doubles: when either of the sides scores 11 points.
If the ends are not changed as indicated in Rules, it shall be done so as soon as the mistake is discovered and when the shuttle is not in play. The existing score shall stand.
In a correct service,
Neither side shall cause undue delay to the delivery of the service once the server and the receiver are ready for the service. On completion of the backward movement of server’s racket head, any delay in the start of the service shall be considered to be an undue delay;
Some part of both feet of the server and the receiver shall remain in contact with the surface of the court in a stationary position from the start of the service until the service is delivered.
The whole shuttle shall be below the server’s waist at the instant of being hit by the server’s racket. The waist shall be considered to be an imaginary line round the body, level with the lowest part of the server’s bottom rib;
The shaft of the server’s racket at the instant of hitting the shuttle shall be pointing in a downward direction; in attempting to serve, the server shall not miss the shuttle.
Once the players are ready for the service, the first forward movement of the server’s racket head shall be the start of the service.
The server shall not serve before the receiver is ready.
However, the receiver shall be considered to have been ready if a return of the service is attempted.
The Referee’s decision will be final.
