Playing the Game
Serve must bounce on both ends of the table
- Play-after the bounce on your side, hit the ball back to your opponent’s side and bounce on the table. If you hit before the ball bounces, you lose a point.
- If the ball doesn’t land on the other end because it goes out of bounds, you lose a point.
- Fall on the net- if the ball is hit to the net and doesn’t land on the other end, you lose a point
- Bounce twice or more- player on that side loses a point
- Freehand- the hand that’s not holding the paddle cannot touch the table. If it does touch-“fault”, lose a point
- The first player to score 11 points wins the game.
- The game must be won by two points.
- A match is best two out of three.
Serving and Choice of Ends
- Coin Toss or Paper, Rock, Scissor determines who can pick to SERVE or RECEIVE or choice of ends.
- After each game, you will alternate ends. Should there be a tie, one game to one game, the players will change ends after the first player reaches five points in the final game.
