The Nature of the Game

The game of table tennis is played on table of 0.76m high by two or four players. The game begins with a serve from the server after a toss for choice of service. The ball must hit the server’s table before crossing the net at the centre of the table into the opponent’s court.

 

A point is awarded to a player who wins the rally. Players change service after every two points have been scored. The player who reaches 11 points (formerly 21 points)  first wins the game. In case of a tie at 10 points, it is called a deuce. A player must win two more points to win the game. Matches are played to the best of 3 or 5 games.
