Played under the same rules as singles, but with two players on each side on a wider court and with a different order of serving and returning. Partners take turns serving (once every four games therefore) and can change their order only at the start of a new set. Similarly, partners decide whether to receive serve from the left or right-hand service court for the duration of a set. Players can hit in any order during a rally.
