Hello PingSkills

I wanna ask something that's about faults

when i play with my fiends, he said that all of my body must not touch the table event the Shirt, bat (no matter it's loud or not when the bat touched the table), and everything

and also when serve, the foot must not pound the ground.

Then I must be silent because a little sound or the big sound just like snapping or shout when playing the table tennis because it's fault

is it true ?

please let me know the true answers

thanks :D

note : I don't believe that're too much faults and also it just free hand that must not touch the table, and it's allowed to pounding my foot on the ground when serving...

Hi Frendy,

You are right, it is only the free hand that isn't allowed to touch the table.

Regarding your foot stamping, if it excessive they can call you especially if it is deliberately trying to put the other player off.  However this is rarely called in the game.

so it means that the bat is allowed to touch the table right ?

about the foot stamping, it means that it's allowed but must not excessive or it'll be fault right ?

then, what about to shout to the opponent deliberate or inadvertent right ? because they said that it can make the opponent shocked and it's fault...

You are not allowed to shout during the rally.  That would be putting off the opponent.
