Is there a limit to the lets on serve? Is it like tennis when the second one is a fault?

Thanks Kathleen

Hi Kathleen,

You cannot get faulted for serving a let. There is no limit on the number of lets. This is actually the same in tennis. However with tennis you have to serve two faults in a row before you lose a point. In Table Tennis if you serve a fault you lose the point. I hope this clears things up for you.

We actually cover this in our lesson on the Table Tennis Rules Overview.
