This question has always kept me thinking and after the latest video response in which you told that you can move anywhere I couldn't stop asking it. I want to know that whether I can come near the net and from there serve the ball from there (helping me do a really short serve)?
You have to be behind the end line or an extension of that line so you are not allowed to go close to the net. It would be easier but unfortunately it isn’t allowed.
Here is an extract of the rule from the ITTF site.
|2.06.04||From the start of service until it is struck, the ball shall be above the level of the playing surface and behind the server's end line, and it shall not be hidden from the receiver by the server or his or her doubles partner or by anything they wear or carry.|
