The rule that contact point of ball and racket while serving has to be beyond the table as well as above the table is undisputed.
However, at my local club, it is also a rule that while one may stand further out of the table sides and serve, the contact point of ball and racket cannot be beyond the sides of the table, it has to be within the tables side white Lines.
I looked up the ITTF rules and there is no mention about NOT being able to serve with contact point outside the table's sides, only mentions has to be behind the table edge and above table height.
Is my local club correct with this rule that contact point cannot be from beyond the sides of the table?
You are allowed to serve from beyond the side lines as long as it is behind the line of the table.
You might have to set them straight.
