    Hi,
    I read some where i forgot where but in doubles play, the serve isn't supposed to go into the back lines, but i read somewhere that in the new rules that you can serve all the way to the back, im sorry if this is like a repost or something but i have never heard of that before and would like to know if its true what i read or not

    Nope, doubles service should stop before it reaches the rear of the court.

    The service area in doubles is SHORT but WIDE. Conversely, in singles it's LONG but NARROW

    Hi Craig,

    Someone had asked me about this question too, and I said "NO"...I am just curious as to where he or you heard this rumor from?

    thanks

    This goes back couple of years back, when the BWF (aka IBF) was considering the rally scoring system. One of the proposals that the WBF was toying with for doubles, was to move the back service line -- all the way back. Thankfully, this idea was never adopted.
