The club meetings are started by organizing the Singles games to make sure each person plays an even number of games. The meeting will then move on to Doubles. Followed by Free Play which gives players a chance to challenge someone on our club ladder, play someone again or request Practice Time (10 minutes).

In both singles and doubles games, we play best of 3 games to 11 points.

Rules for Singles -

You can serve wherever you like. You have to throw the ball up in the air and hit it so it bounces on your side and then the other side. If the ball hits the net and drops to the other side, this is called a 'let' which means you start your serve again. Once the ball leaves your hand that is your serve. There are no 2nd serves in table tennis.

Up to 11 points means 2 serves each. If you reach 10-10 you alternate serves until one player wins by 2 points. You swap ends for the 2nd game and whoever didn't start serving in the 1st game starts serving in the 2nd. First person to win 2 games wins. If you reach the 3rd game, swap ends and swap ends again when the first person reaches 5 points.

Doubles play consists of a pair of players on either side of the table. The game format is the same, best of 3 games to 11 points. Doubles teams will change from week to week.

Rules for Doubles -

The Serve - The serve itself is exactly the same as in singles except that, rather than the ball bouncing anywhere on the table, it must bounce only on the right half portion of the table for both the server and the receiver (so you serve diagonally). The service still alternates every 2 points between teams, but it also alternates between players on the same team. After your service is complete, you swap sides with your partner and they become the receiver. The original receiver is now the server.

Order of Play - The server shall first make a service, the receiver shall then make a return, the partner of the server shall then make a return, the partner of the receiver shall then make a return and thereafter each player in turn in that sequence shall make a return. If you hit the ball out of sequence you lose the point.

For example, let's imagine two teams ... A & B and X & Y. Player A serves to Player X who then returns the ball. Player B must then play the next shot and player Y must play the next shot. The same sequence must then be repeated (A, X, B, Y) until the point is decided.

Who Serves and Receives in each game? - Once it has been decided which team will serve first at the beginning of the match, that team will decide which player in their team will serve first. Their opponents will then decide which player in their team will receive first.

This sequence will then be maintained throughout that game, but in the next game, the sequence will be reversed.

Let's imagine two teams again... A & B and X & Y.

At the start of the match, Player A elects to serve first and Player X elects to receive first. This means that for that first game, Player A will always serve to Player X.

In the next game, X & Y will decide whether X or Y serves first. When they have decided who will serve first, the receiver will automatically be determined by reversing the sequence of the previous game.

For example, if Player A served to Player X in the first game and Player X elects to serve first in the second game, Player A must be the receiver for all of Player X's serves for that game.

Therefore, after the first game, for every subsequent game in the match, each team will decide which player in their team will serve first and then the receiver will be determined automatically by reversing the sequence of the previous game.
