Match Play Rules:
1. Doubles play
2. At the end of 20 minutes, the team with the most games won moves up one court, and the other team moves down one court
3. The balls always remain on the same court, regardless of how players move
4. General rule is to stick with your partner for 1st & 2nd match; if one team wants to switch partners with another team and both agree, that’s fine. Everyone changes partners after the 2nd match, and the general rule is to stick with your partner for 3rd & 4th match
5. The first time a player serves, they can choose either FBI or 3 practice serves. After that normal serving applies
6. There are no ‘ad’ games. First team to 4 points wins the game
7. Players do not switch court sides after odd games, each team remains on the same side.
8. Players spin a racquet to determine who will have the option to serve first. Whichever team serves first, the opposite team has their choice of which side of the court they want
9. If teams are tied in games when the whistle blows at the end of 20 minutes, then regardless of the score of the current game, the current server serves once more and one final point is played to determine who wins (winner of the point is considered the winning team)
