In a 15-point game the side first reaching 13, but later tied, may set the game 3 to 5 additional points, or the side first reaching 14 may set the game to 3 additional points. In a 21-point game the scores may be set to 5 or 3 at 19-all or 20-all respectively. In the 11-point women's singles the game may be set at 5 or 3 when the score is respectively 9-all or 10-all. Games per Rubber or Match The best two out of three.
Choice of Service and Courts
The winner of the toss (coin or racket) has the choice of serving, receiving, or defending a particular side. The loser of the toss has a choice of the remaining options.
Players change courts at the end of a game and the winner serves first. In doubles, either of the two winners may serve first and either of the two losers may receive first.
If a third game is necessary to determine the winner of a match the players shall change courts when the leading score reaches 6 in a game of 11, 8 in a game of 15, or 11 in a game of 21 aces.
