The server must serve the ball so that it touches his side of the table once, then bounces over or about the net, and then touches his challenger’s side of the table. A serve that touches the net assembly on the way, but still touches his side first and then the challenger’s side on the second bounce, is called a let serve and must be replayed.

The Racket

It is necessary that one side of the racket blade must be black, and bright red on the other. This is so a player opponent can swiftly and easily tell which side of the bat has been used.

Service Rules
