Happenings Around the Club
Sunshine State Games

STTC made an awesome showing at the Sunshine State Games. There were a record number of entries in most events so the competition was tough. Some of these players are getting good. They are going to be harder to beat next year.

Service Rule Violations
By Rudy Santo, Certified USATT Umpire

As a certified USATT umpire I would to comment on a table tennis rule that I see being violated often during tournament play. It is the table tennis service rule. Table tennis service rules are outlined in sections 6.0 thru 6.6 of the USATT Rules Manual and all tournament players should be familiar with them and abide by them. These are a few of the service rule violations that I have observed in recent tournaments
