One player serves each entire game.  Serves start on the right side of the court. You always get two chances to serve for each point.  Serves must be diagonal and past the short service line.

Service can happen anywhere behind the back line

Players are positioned by number 1 through 6.  Serving player is #1 and numbers go up in a counter clockwise rotation around the court.  Once the serve is won back players rotate in a clockwise rotation.  On the serve 3 players must be ahead of the attack line and 3 players behind it – players must start in their correct position but after the serve are free to move.

Libero - a defensive specialist – can not go ahead of the attack line

In singles the center line means nothing

Ball must start in the open palm and tossed at least 6 inches (16cm) into the air.  Ball must be hit onto the server’s side first and then onto the opponent’s side. 

The serve must take place behind the end of the table – not over top of it

A legal serve that hits the net is called a let and reserved.

Edges of the table are in and the ball can leave the side of the table for a point (not just off the end)

A return must be hit so it passes over or around the net and touches the opponent’s court.

A server can serve to win the game.  There is no actual dead man’s serve
