Original Rule Text

1 Return the first score to 0 0 Start

2 Discontinue the provisional Drop Serve

Reasoning Behind Suggested Change

In Both changes when it involves "teaching the new beginner" that:

  1. 0 0 2 is very confusing to beginners whereas 0 0 start is self explanatory
  2.  Drop serve in my opinion offers nothing but more confusion and again particularly when teaching new beginners who already have enough to learn with just learning one serve
