by Earnests Drake Earnests Drake

Table tennis is a very exciting sport all over the world. This game is entirely based on intense speed, initially called Ping Pong. This game is highly popular in Asia, and it was first featured in the summer Olympics in 1988. There are a lot of rules, regulations, equipment and guidance for playing table tennis. Table tennis comes with a lot of official rules that this game can only be played on a fibre wooden table which is 2.74 x 1.53 meters long. The tennis table is kept at a height of 15.25 centimetres.

The racquet is also called as a paddle or a bat which is 17 to 15 cm wide and made of wood. It is either in red or black colour and made from a rubber surface. For spinning and hitting the ball, a player will start negating the ball with the help of a racquet.

Service Rules

The match begins with a coin toss which is conducted by the umpire, and whosoever is the winner will begin playing the ball first. After that, they get the option to choose any side of the table for playing the game.

1.    Way to spin sever

A player must hit the balls, and if the ball bounces, it will be considered a foul. The basic service rule is to diagonally travel the ball. The player who is on the serving end will play table tennis from the right end.

2.    Scored and points

The main aim while playing table tennis is to strike the ball before the opponent does. The one who has the maximum number of scores will win the game. In case the ball got bounced in the net and didn't come back, then the opponent gets an extra point.

3.    Winning table tennis

The one who scores 11 points will win the game, as all the player has a chance to serve the ball. However, if both players have 10-10 points, the one who has strived the game will become the winner.

Pro tip:

The table tennis shots are based on different variations such as topspin, block, and chop, where the paddle used to be held at 45-degree angle.
