Serving rules for Table Tennis
Question:What Happens When the Server Misses the Ball When Serving?
Hi! Does a server lose the point - when serving he tosses the ball - but the racket does not touch the ball at all and the ball falls? Does he lose the point or it is just a re-serve?
Thanks & regards,
Answer: Hello Sanju,
If the server throws the ball into the air to make a serve, but misses the ball completely, it is a point for the receiver.
Law 2.6.3 of the Laws of Table Tennis states:
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.
In addition, Law 126.96.36.199 states:
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.
So in the case where the server throws the ball into the air to start the service, but misses the ball, the server has failed to comply with the requirements of a good service, and so he loses the point.blogging statistics blogging name ideas blogging essentials blogging on squarespace blogging questions blogging legal issues blogging revenue blogging etiquette blogging definition bloggingheads blogging jobs remote blogging examples blogging for kids blogging mama blogging journal blogging jobs for moms blogging quora blogging sites for free blogging events blogging platforms examples blogging on facebook blogging meaning in english blogging niche quiz blogging guide blogging earning potential blogging the bracket blogging ideas for beginners blogging define blogging history bloggingx pro blogging podcast blogging helps your inbound marketing by bloggingx bloggingx pro free download blogging udemy vlogging camera with flip screen blogging resume blogging jobs online blogging on medium blogging platforms 2021 blogging quotes goodreads blogging laptop blogging passive income blogging for dummies blogging money blogging vs podcasting blogging conferences 2021 blogging in the classroom blogging niches 2021 blogging lamp blogging using google sites blogging hubspot blogging uses blogging income blogging host sites blogging godaddy blogging name generator blogging bishop blogging in spanish blogging images blogging synonym blogging hashtags blogging keyword research tools blogging unscramble blogging microphone blogging gif blogging theology youtube blogging vs microblogging blogging websites that pay blogging with google sites blogging services blogging pro blogging degree blogging vs vlogging 2021 blogging topics blogging kit best buy blogging courses blogging on wix blogging legally blogging essential tools blogging under pseudonym blogging software blogging with squarespace blogging salary blogging wizard blogging jobs near me blogging guide substack blogging quotes blogging to make money blogging niche ideas blogging gigs blogging dog center blogging or vlogging blogging platforms free blogging quiz blogging under a pen name blogging equipment blogging def blogging memes blogging basics blogging rules blogging dallas cowboys blogging statistics blogging ring light blogging for seo blogging for money blogging how to blogging keywords blogging ideas blogging the boys blogging is dead blogging classes blogging for free blogging networks blogging que es blogging jobs blogging coach blogging hoosier history blogging definition and example blogging vs vlogging blogging for beginners blogging meaning blogging lessons blogging conferences 2022 blogging websites to make money blogging vs youtube blogging the boys trolling the nation blogging marketing blogging questions for students blogging jobs from home blogging kya hai blogging unscripted blogging on instagram blogging for business vlogging camera blogging vs journaling blogging website builder blogging courses for beginners blogging millionaire blogging on shopify blogging retreat blogging vs instagram blogging without social media blogging for students blogging kaise kare blogging names blogging explained blogging routine blogging platforms blogging qna blogging in 2021 blogging prompts blogging video camera blogging websites blogging guidelines blogging kit blogging light blogging on linkedin blogging recipes blogging google blogging university blogging dirty blogging like you mean it blogging rubric blogging kaise karte hain blogging the boys podcast blogging business plan blogging job description blogging niches xkcd blogging blogging goals blogging sites
