Change of Ends
If a match goes into the final game (ie the 5th game of a best of five), or the 7th game of a best of seven), then the players are supposed to change ends when the first player reaches 5 points. On occasion, the players and umpires will forget to make the change. In this case, the score stays at whatever it is at the time (eg 8-3), the players swap and play continues. The score is not returned to what it was when the first player reached 5 points. (Laws 2.14.2, 2.14.3)
