What if i serve and the ball hit the side of the table?

Do i repeat the service or is a point for the other guy?

Hi Aris,

If the ball hits the other side of the table after bouncing on your side it almost certainly will be your point as it has probably hit the top even if it is on the edge.  As long as it hits somewhere on the top of the table it is considered to be in.
