    6. If the serving side wins a rally, the serving side scores a point and the same server serves again from the alternate service court.

    7. If the receiving side wins a rally, the receiving side scores a point. The receiving side becomes the new serving side.

    8. The players do not change their respective service courts until they win a point while their side is serving.
