Rules on Let Serves

The serve is a let if:

  1. The served ball touches the net, strap or band, and lands in the correct court.
  2. The served ball touches the net, strap or band and then touches the receiver, the receiver’s partner or anything they wear or carry before hitting the ground.
  3. The ball is served when the receiver is not ready.

When it is a let serve, that particular serve does not count and the server shall serve again. However a let serve does not cancel the previous fault.
