You hit the ball back and forth over the net with another person. If the ball bounces twice on your side, you lose a point. Or if you can not return it and have it bounce once on the other persons side you lose a point. People play to different point totals.

What rules is the answer for can you lose a game in ping pong if it's the last point?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The official rules of table tennis state that you have two serves, and then your opponent has two serves.

However, if the score reaches 10-10, each player has only one serve each until the game is won by two clear points.

So if you happen to be serving last at game/match point ... all the better!

Is the ball still in play if it hits a runner after it passes a fielder?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

No. If a batted ball is touched by a defensive player before it touches a runner, the ball is live and the runner is not out.

Also, if a batted ball passes a fielder that could make a play on the ball and touches a runner, the ball is live and the runner is not out. This situation is very rare and would only occur when the infield is playing in and are in front of the runner(s).

Is table tennis the same as ping pong?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

One of the original names for table tennis was ping pong.

Ping Pong was then registered as a trademark by the sports company John Jaques & Son in England.

Parker Brothers in the USA also bought the rights from Jaques to use the name ping pong in the USA only.

So the name of the game was changed to table tennis.

The official name today is table tennis.

Ping Pong is still a trademark and is a brand of equipment in the USA which is used to play the sport of table tennis.

Who are the official persons involved in table tennis and what are their duties?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Table tennis has an umpire, an assistant umpire, a timekeeper and a stroke counter.

The assistant umpire often also acts as the timekeeper and stroke counter.

For each match there is an umpire, whose primary duty is to decide the result of each

rally. Where the umpire is officiating alone, his is the final decision on all questions of fact that arise during a match, including decisions on all edge balls and on all aspects of

service.

An assistant umpire is solely responsible for decisions on edge balls at the side of the table nearest to him, and he has the same power as the umpire to decide the legality of a player's service action, whether a player obstructs the ball and some of the conditions for a let.

The timekeeper is required to monitor the duration of practice, of play in a game, of intervals between games and of any authorised suspension of play, and his decision is final on the time that has elapsed.

Stroke counting is required when the expedite system is in operation and the stroke

counter's duty is solely to count the return strokes of the receiver and his decision on

this question of fact cannot be overruled.

Asked by Wiki User

Officials are all volunteers who give up their time to officiate at table tennis events.

The top official is the Tournament Referee.

The role of a tournament referee differs widely from one Association to another and from one tournament to another.

For each match there is an umpire, whose primary duty is to decide the result of each rally.

For international competitions an assistant umpire is appointed and he takes over or shares some of the umpire's duties.

What positions are on a tennis team?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

There aren't really positions in tennis. If you are playing singles, then there isn't any. just you. i suppose if you are playing doubles you have the server who is on the base line and then the person who is either at the "hot seat" (the line that is at the end of the serving box) or at the net. So i guess that's it Well actually there are positions on a tennis team, the best players have the first positions and the worst ones take the lower positions. Sometimes bad players have to play at a higher ranking, and depending on your position you might not get to play singles or you may only play singles depending on what team you play for.
