Returning a serve out of service box
Can the receiver leave his service box after the server makes initiates the serve (i.e. makes contact with the shuttle)?
Example: Is the receiver allowed to move forward out of his service box towards the net to return the serve or do his/her feet need to be within the service box when he first makes contact with the shuttle?
I have a playing partner that leaps forward out of his service box like a wild gazelle to return my serves when I serve short. Would love to hear that he's cheating but from my interpretation of the rules it appears that he's allowed to leave the service box as soon as the server makes contact with the shuttle to initiate the serve.

You can return the service from any position on the court!
But it's a fault if the receiver moves before you even hit the shuttle.

the receiver must be inside the box before the server strikes the shuttle.
once after the server strikes the shuttle, it is anybody's game, the receiver can go anywhere he wants.

Sounds like he's vulnerable to a flick serve !
