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 servers 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.
126.96.36.199 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.
188.8.131.52 Any subsequent service of doubtful legality by him or his
doubles partner will result in a point to the receiver.
184.108.40.206 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.
