Hello, I was wondering if you could clarify whether its opponents point when the server's racket touches the table on a serve?

I believed that its not allowed for the paddle to touch the table when serving however its allowed other times.

Please clarify.

Hi Ubayeedurrahman,

It is OK for the bat to touch the table at any time in the rally including the serve.

Hope this clears it up for you.

You do have to contact the ball behind the end line on the serve however.
