Players should read the official Table Tennis Rules below:
**********************************************************************
Legal Service:
The ball must rest on an open hand palm and thrown vertically at least 6 inches above the table before serving.
Hiding the ball is against the rules.
Serve must be from above and behind the table.
If the serve is legal except that it touches the net, it is called a let serve. 
Let serves are not scored and are reserved. There is no limit on number of let serves.
If a serve is attempted and the ball is not touched, it'll still count as a point to opposite team.
 
In doubles, serve must be on from right half of the center line to the right half of opponent side and each player plays the alternate ball.
After serving two serves, the server changes position and the opponent team serves.
 
In singles, the center lines serve no purpose, so ignore them.
 
Flow of match:
Each player serves two points in a row and then switch server. 
However, if a score of 10-10 is reached in any game, then each server serves only one point and then the server is switched. 
After each game, the players switch side of the table. 
In the final game (ie 5th game), the players switch side again after either player reaches 5 points. 
 
 
Scoring:
A match is played best 3 of 5 games (or 4/7 or 5/9). For each game, the first player to reach 11 points wins that game, however a game must be won by at least a two point margin.
A point is scored after each ball is put into play (not just when the server wins the point as in volleyball).
The edges of the table are part of the legal table surface, but not the sides.
Players' free hand should not touch the table or it'll count as a point to opposite team.
 
Equipment
The paddle should have a red and a black side. 
The ball should be either orange or white and 40 mm in size. 
The table should be 2.74 meters long, 1.525 m wide, and 0.76 m high.
Net should be 6 inches tall from the table.
