Your last ping cast reminded me of this question. When serving in doubles and the ball lands on centre line of table, is that still a good serve? Or how much of the ball has to be on each side of the centre line? I take the example of UK football where it's only a goal if the whole of the ball has crossed the goal line ie no part/fraction looking along the line impinges on it.
If any part of the ball is on the line it is in. This is always a difficult one to judge though. The line is always very fine and the ball moves so fast and with no lines people the umpire has to have a good feel for it to get it right.
