Like every official sport, we have rules. Check 'em out below.

Rules for games played to 21 points
  • Games are to be played to 21 points
  • Switch serves every 5 points
  • The server can serve to any side of the table, as long as the ball bounces 1 time on their side before crossing the net and bouncing on their opponents side
  • When serving, the ball must be tossed 10cm (4 in) into the air, behind the end of the table (back white line)
  • A “Let” is when the Server hits the ball and it clips the net but still makes it over onto the opponent's side. The server is allowed 2 consecutive “Lets”. After the 3rd “Let” a point is awarded to the non-serving player and the Let count reverts back to zero for the serving player.
  • Switch sides after every completed game to 21
  • Sides & First Serve are chosen by a heads or tails coin toss at the beginning of the game. Winner of the coin toss gets to choose what side of the table they would like to start on and if they would like to serve/receive first.
  • Must win by 2 points
Overtime rules are as follows:
  • Switch serve every 1 point until one player leads by 2 points
