Hi Alois

I want to know if it's allowed to switch from forehand to backhand or the other way around during service. 

For example serving pendulum and hitting with the other side

Thank you

Hi Zaid,

Yes you are.  As long as you are still throwing the ball up quite straight then it is OK.

So if you are merely switching the side of the racket that you use that is acceptable.

So you can switch even during the service right ?

Yes as long as the ball goes up almost vertically you can move around and use whichever side of the bat that you want.
