I think that the people in the team that is serving will decide who is going to serve. I think that you just start with the team who wants to serve first.... (plz correct me if I am wrong!!!!)

youre incorrect :) i play varsity and it is decided by a coin flip...The coaches choose two captains and they and the captains of the other team flip a coin and whoever wins the coin toss decides if they want the serve or if they want to give it to the opposing team...

The two team members either flip a coin or do rock paper sciccors to determine who will serve first.

At most clubs, it is normal practice to decide who serves first by hitting the shuttlecock up into the air. Whichever side the shuttlecock points to goes first.

However, the rules say that the decision is made by a coin toss and this is how the decision is made in professional matches.

there is a coin-toss before the game. The team that wins the toss can choose to serve first or receive first.

The team who lost the coin flip gets to serve first in the second match.
