Moving the Table | Table Tennis | PingSkills

November 4, 2019

Hi I’m Alois Rosario from PingSkills. Ujjvar had a situation where he was playing
an opponent who smashed the ball at him, he missed the ball and he noticed that his opponent
moved the table but it happened after the ball had hit the floor. Who wins the point? We are going to dramatically recreate the
point. For this dramatic demonstration I’m going
to be Ujjval’s opponent and Alois is going to be Ujjval. Now as Ujjval’s opponent I serves really good
tricky topspin serve with lots of spin, it bounced and it kicked and Ujjval who is holding
the camera now hit the ball up high and I said “Yes this is great” and I saw it and
I smashed it for a winner and I got excited and then I fell over and I bumped the table
and it moved. It was very dramatic. Uh, Jeff that was the worst dramatisation
I’ve ever seen, but anyway, let’s get back to the facts and the rules. What happens in
that situation is that because Ujjval’s opponent has moved the table after the ball has bounced
on the floor that is Ujjval’s opponent’s. “Jeff’s” Point. So as soon as the ball bounces
on the floor that is the end of the point and whatever happens after that doesn’t matter. Do you have a Table Tennis Question? Ask the Coach

    "That was the worst dramatisation I've ever seen" was Alois quote after watching Jeff recreate a point. Is he right?

    Is it allowed to touch the table with your racket during a point?!!!!

  • Reply Daniel Guevara Marlez September 12, 2013 at 9:45 pm

    Yes what is not allowed is to touch the table with the hand that u don't hold the racket, in my case i play wth the right hand so i can't touch the table with my left hand 🙂

    Hello, I love watching your videos. But I need only one more skill: how to not get scared from a attacking forehand loop.

    Hi i am a member and I would like to know how to do the around the net smash would be great!

  • Reply Mighty Edwin September 15, 2013 at 9:55 am

    focus on the finish position, so the bat in front of your face. it may take some time to get used to it but once you can do that you will have more accuracy

    good question

  • Reply Jason Holden December 5, 2013 at 4:14 am

    can you squish the other opponent so they cant move

  • Reply shellvibe December 12, 2013 at 9:10 pm

    I faced a similar situation today, where I hit the ball and missed the table but at the same time the opponent made a contact of the bat to the table. Who wins the point?

  • Reply Bus Lan April 27, 2014 at 2:57 pm

    Well, I thought it would be pretty obvious anyway that once the ball touches the ground after a player's shot/serve, that player wins the ball even if he decides to lift the table up on his head afterward

    Do I concede the point if my leg touches the table or is it only if you fall on it?

  • Reply ARMAN garg August 2, 2018 at 3:42 pm
