I just got a ping-pong table, and several times the ball has hit the side of the table.  So what is the call? 

Thanks, John

Hi John,

The ball has to hit the top of the table to be in, so if it is hitting the side it is out.

Fr this and more rules on the game you can take a look at our Rules of Table Tennis lesson which goes through the basics.  You can also download our free PDF Table Tennis Rules Brochure. This will give you a good start with the rules of the game.  It is also available as an A3 Table Tennis Rules Wall Chart.
