The Official Rules of Table Tennis

                                           

14. The Choice of Ends and Serves

14.1 The choice of ends and the right to serve or receive first in a match shall be decided by lot and the winner may choose to serve or receive first or to start at a particular end.

14.2 When one player or pair has chosen to serve or receive first or to start at a particular end, the other player or pair shall have the other choice.

14.3 After each 5 points have been scored the receiving player or pair and so on until the end of the game unless both players or pairs have scored 20 points or the expedite system in operation, when the sequence for serving and receiving shall be the same except each player shall serve for one point in turn.

14.4 In the first game of a match the pair who has the right to serve first shall decide which of them shall do so and in the first game of a match, the opposing pair shall then decide which partner will receive first. In subsequent games of a match, the first server having been chosen, the first receiver shall be the player who served to him in the preceding game.

14.5 In doubles, at each change of service the previous receiver shall become the server and the partner of the previous server shall become the receiver.

14.6 The player or pair serving first in a game shall receive first in the next game of the match. In the last possible game of a doubles match the pair to receive next shall change their order of receiving when first either pair scores 10 points.

14.7 The player or pair starting at one end in a game shall start at the other end in the next game of the match. In the last possible game of a doubles match the players or pairs shall change ends when first either player or pair scores 10 points.
