Hi Dennis,

Good to have you back  coming to us from Gibraltar.

A double handed shot is allowed.  I recently checked with Graeme Ireland a noted Umpire and Referee and he assures me that you are allowed to do that.

In tennis it gives you more control and power, because you are hitting the ball with more strenght, but in table tennis it isn't good because it reduce the speed of the stroke....
