A friend told me that if you serve and the first bounce is hit on the white line, the serve would have to be served again is this true?

Hi Tri,

No that isn't a rule.  The white lines are all part of the top of the table and only there to help with sighting the ends.

Though,being able to serve on the white lines purely could be an useful art,what do you think,Alois?
