Table Tennis Question about the Volley

by Carol Kane

Table tennis questions


I have a question about volleying the ball when playing table tennis.

Can a player return the ball before it bounces on their court?

What do the rules say?

Thanks for your question.

No, you cannot return the ball before it bounces.

That would be a volley which is not allowed in table tennis.

The technical term for a volley is "obstruction" but what it refers to is hitting the ball before it bounces.

There's a full explanation on my page at ...
