Hi PingSkills,

I always see players doing some on-table warm up before starting matches by some counterhits and topspin-block. But is it possible to refuse warming up with the opponent or we must do it? If yes, do we need to have a good reason (such as already warmed up)?

Hi Viet,

It is just part of the etiquette of the game.  There is no rule that says you have to.
