What happens when you serve in doubles and it hits the middle white line of the table?

Hi Kelvin,

The white line is considered as in.  It is difficult to pinpoint when it hits the middle line though as it is usually really fine.

okay, because mainly if it lands on the middle line the opponent usually will call it as 'wrong side'. what should i do then?

This is difficult unless you have a proper umpire.  I would point out the rule to them and see what they say.  It is often a dispute about the fact of where it landed.
