How to Serve in Table Tennis | Ping Pong

my name is tal Lewis and I'm here at spin New York I'm a professional table tennis player who's been competing internationally since 1995 I'm here today to speak to you about the intermediate and beginner aspects of the Olympic sport of table tennis I am now going to demonstrate how to serve in table tennis I'm actually known throughout the world as having very legal services so the thing is what we need to do in is first we need to stand behind the end line when we serve we cannot have our racket over this white line our rackets got to be behind the white line so that's the first important thing secondly our palm has to be completely open we can't cup it like this we have to have the ball in our palm and it has to be open and behind the line third we need to throw the ball at least six inches it can't move like this it has to stay here six inches fourth which is really important and they just changed the rule we cannot hide the ball I'm going to demonstrate an illegal serve which is the way players used to play they used to serve here and serve under their arm you can't do that anymore now what we need to do is we need to serve here and move our hand so that's one way for a legal service so what we're doing is where we're starting the ball it's in the palm of our hand for behind the white line or throwing the ball six inches and then we're just moving our hand and making sure nothing obstructs by the ball a lot of players you know when they're starting out they like to try to serve the ball like this like right out of their hand in a legal official tournament that won't be legal because you're gonna have an umpire and a referee on each side and they can see exactly what you're doing and they're gonna expect that you keep the ball in your arm throw the ball six inches and you don't hide the ball and that's the legal service
