Table Tennis Question About The Return of Service Position

Table tennis questions


Can your opponent who is returning your serve have any part of his body over the white line or edge of the table?

I am finding that some players are keeping their racket ready to return over the white line or edge of the table.

The receiver can stand wherever they like and can have any part of their body over the white line or edge of the table

Of course, in doubles you know which side of the table the serve is coming, but you still have to wait for the ball to bounce of course, as you cannot volley it!

In singles, it's a bit more difficult to know where the serve is going, but you can still stand wherever you choose.

If the receiver is standing close to the table ready to return the ball with their racket over the white line or edge of the table, try serving a fast, long, deep serve, and they'll soon find that it's not an advantage for them!
