HI Alois,

My question is,

1 . If my racket was hitting the table during serve so is this Fault?

2. I was always under the assumption that the serve had to strike my opponent's end of the table only once.  If it bounced twice, it was a loss of point.  So is this right assumption or false?

Kindly clear this point for me.

Hi Muhammad,

1. The racket is allowed to hit the table during a serve or any time during the rally.

2. The ball can bounce as many times as you like on your opponent's side of the table.  It needs to bounce a minimum of once.

Hope this clears up your queries.
