Each player starts off on the deuce side (right side of the court) at the beginning of the game and alternates between deuce and ad (left side) every point, but every game always starts on the deuce side.

"I'd like to build a tennis court, but I'm not sure how to get started. Can anyone let me know how to get going on tennis court construction"?

The American Sports Builders Association has a great guide for tennis court construction. I'd start there. "I really think that if you're just starting a tennis court construction, you should look into putting down a flex court surface. It's durable and it protects your ankles and knees with all the running around."

Why you must start with the right hand side of the badminton court?

You need to start on the right side of the badminton court because in your first serve, you are serving evens. (0) For evens (0,2,4,6,8) you stand on the right side of the court to serve and for odds (1,3,5,7,9) you stand on the left side of the court to serve.

Which court do you serve into first in tennis?

I will interpret this question as asking which SIDE of the tennis court do you serve into first in tennis. The two halves of the tennis court are called "ad" (short for advantage) and "deuce." Your ad court is diagonal to your opponent's ad court and your deuce court is diagonal to your opponent's deuce court. You begin serving on your ad side diagonally into your opponent's ad side. If you are facing the net from the baseline, the ad side is the right and the deuce side is the left. In simpler terms, you start on the right side and serve diagonally into the left side of your opponent's court. This is a link to a tennis court diagram. Perhaps a visual will help better understand the answer to your question. It can be found on the related links.
