    Most camcorders have 30 frames per second. Have a friend take a video of your serve from the side. Pull the clip onto the PC and view it with PC software, which lets you advance frame by frame. An easy way is to see if you can get a sequence where you where you stop the clip at impact (might need more than one clip to find a good one), then advance one frame and figure out how far the ball traveled. Fill in the parameters and good luck...:)
