Following the first serve of a match, subsequent serves shall be made by the team last scored upon. First serves in subsequent games of a multi game match shall be made by the team which lost the preceding game.
If the ball is served by the wrong team, and the violation is discovered before the ball is scored, play shall be stopped and the ball shall be re served by the proper team. Once the ball is scored, no protests shall be allowed, and play shall continue as if no infraction had been committed.
If a team receives the serve because the opposing team is being penalized for a rules infraction, and if, after the ball is served, it goes dead or leaves the table and must be re served, it shall be re served by the team who originally served it prior to the infraction.
