Assume the service order was A, C, B, D during the set. At 6-all, it's A's turn to serve again. 1) A serves once from the ad court on the North End. Change ends. 2) C serves twice from North End (deuce court first; ad court second). 3) B serves twice from South End (deuce court first; ad court second). Change ends. 4) D serves twice from South End (deuce court first; ad court second). 5) A serves twice from North End (deuce court first; ad court second). Change ends and repeat this order until one team reaches 7 points or wins by 2 points after each team reaches 6 points.
Note: The team that did not start serving the 12-point tiebreaker will serve first in the next set. Since all sets after 12-point tiebreakers end in odd scores, teams must switch sides from where the first service of the tie-breaker took place. In this example, team C-D would start serving the next set from the North End.
