Rules-To get you started

Just starting in Table Tennis

The aim of the game is simple; hit the ball over the net onto your opponent’s side. The ball should bounce once on the opponent’s side of the table. A point is won by you if your opponent is unable to return the ball or if they hit the ball before it bounces on their side of the table (unless the ball has already cleared the table).

  • Winner is the first to 11 points

  • If the score is 10-10, them game continues until one of the players has gained a lead of 2 points

  • Points are won irrespective of who has served

  • Matches can the best of 3, 5 or 7 games – or any odd number you like, most NLTTA tournaments use a best of 5 format
