I know that in a best of 5 match the serving team can choose to switch sides of the table when serving in the deciding game when 5 points are reached. However, if the play continues beyond 5 points and sides are not changed can a team still decide to switch sides at any point after that? Or does it have to happen at the 5 point mark? Thanks, Walt.
When the first team reaches 5 in the deciding game you must switch sides. This is not an option of the serving team.
If you are playing doubles, you also have to change receivers. If you were meant to be serving to me for the next point, you now serve to my partner.
I hope this clears up the rule for you.
