Has the table tennis net ever been higher than 6 inches?

Hi Dale,

Not to my knowledge.  It has always been 6inches.  They have talked for a long tie about raising the height of the net but I don't think that will happen.

If the net height increases, the serve toss has to increase as well,right?

Not necessarily.

ITTF would lose money on this I guess :DD
Because exchanging balls is easy,because they crack,they get accidentally stomped on,they easily get lost etc.
But nets?
In my club,there were 2 nets for more than 20years and they do not seem to be damaged too much.
