I am wondering if there is a "time-rule" for getting the ball back for serving. This issue may have other members. too: I am 70 years old, and have a heart and lounge condition, which allows me to play each point with strong smashes, going back and forth, but at the end of the rally I am exhausted. In order to get my breath I like to walk slowly to get the ball back if it is on my side of the table.
I know it may be annoying for my opponents, but it keeps me alive in the game. What are your thoughts of this? My play level is "medium", and because I am the oldest in our team I have to play with much younger opponents in our league....
Thanks for your answer in spe, Tom (Germany)
There is no time allocation but it just says that play should be continuous. I would think that if you need the time in between points that is OK.
I think staying alive is quite important for the progress of the match!
