Table tennis questions


My table tennis question relates to the rules about touching the table tennis table.

Can you tell me, when playing table tennis and I touch the table, is it wrong?

Eddy,

Thanks for your question.

I have already answered this question here ...
www.allabouttabletennis.com/basic-table-tennis-rules.html

But here is the answer again ...


Rule 2.10 states that ...

Unless the rally is a let, a player shall score a point if his opponent's free hand touches the playing surface.



This means that if you touch the playing surface (i.e. the top of the table) with your hand which is not holding your racket whilst the ball is still in play, you lose the point.

So, if you're right handed, and you touch the playing surface with your left hand, you lose the point.
