hi, my school is gonna make a table tennis tournament and i might end up being the umpire, so i have a question about something that many people have problem with, if you serve but your bat hits the table is it a valid serve? and, if you hit the table with the bat during a rally is it valid? please answer as quickly as you can (if you could make a video for youtube it would be awesome)

Hi Pedro,

This is an easy one.  Your bat is allowed to touch the table.  The only thing that isn't allowed to touch the table is your free hand.  You also are not allowed to move the surface of the table at all.
