Service Rule.

 

In an effort to encourage ‘CORRECT SERVING’ could we refer everybody to the ETTA Approved Laws of Table Tennis – Rule 2.6 below

2.6 THE SERVICE

2.6.1 Service shall start with the ball resting freely on the open

palm of the server's stationary free hand.

2.6.2 The server shall then project the ball near vertically

upwards, without imparting spin, so that it rises at least

16cm after leaving the palm of the free hand and then

falls without touching anything before being struck.

2.6.3 As the ball is falling the server shall strike it so that it

touches first his court and then, after passing over or

around the net assembly, touches directly the receiver's

court; in doubles, the ball shall touch successively the

right half court of server and receiver.

2.6.4 From the start of service until it is struck, the ball shall be

above the level of the playing surface and behind the

server's end line, and it shall not be hidden from the

receiver by the server or his doubles partner or by

anything they wear or carry.

2.6.5 As soon as the ball has been projected, the server’s free

arm and hand shall be removed from the area between

the ball and the net.

Note: The space between the ball and the net is defined

by the ball, the net and its indefinite upwards extension.

2.6.6 It is the responsibility of the player to serve so that the

umpire or the assistant umpire can see that he complies

with the requirements for a good service.

2.6.6.1 If the umpire is doubtful of the legality of a service he

may, on the first occasion in a match, declare a let and

warn the server.

2.6.6.2 Any subsequent service of doubtful legality by him or his

doubles partner will result in a point to the receiver.

2.6.6.3 Whenever there is a clear failure to comply with the

requirements for a good service no warning shall be

given and the receiver shall score a point

2.6.7 Exceptionally, the umpire may relax the requirements for

a good service where he is satisfied that compliance is

prevented by physical disability.
