I got a question concerning the rules. I'm playing with long pips on the backhand and inverted rubber on the forehand. while my opponent is making his serve, do i have to hold my bat over the table where he can see it or can i hide it under the table and choose which side i want to use to receive the serve?
Right now i keep my bat over the table just in case the other option is illegal and twiddle the bat right as my opponent is concentrating on his serve, but i wanted to make sure that the other option is illegal, because if its not i don't see a reason not to do it.
hope you can help me.
Kind regards, David
You are allowed to hold your bat under the table when receiving. It is a tacit that you can definitely imply legally. Give it a try and see if it has some effect.
