To serve the player must bounce the ball on the floor once and forcefully strike it against the front wall- making the ball rebound beyound the short line and strike floor, either with or without touching a side wall otherwise the serve counts as fault.

After the ball bounces behind the short line, or passes the recieving line, the ball is in play and the opposing player(s) may it in turn.
