Many of you have been asking if we have any Club Play Rules. The answer is... YES, WE DO!
Remember, everyone deserves the opportunity to play.
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
