A service is the act of putting the ball in play by the player behind the baseline, by batting it over the net and into the opponent's court with one hand or with the forearm. A person may serve from anywhere along the baseline. A serve may hit the net provided it goes over. An unsuccessful serve gives the opposition a point and the service.
