Hello Alios,

This is regarding service in games, so my question is that, if i serve and it touches the racket but not the table,is that a let and is played again or is it a foul and is a point for my opponent ?

Thank you,

Hi Moataz,

As soon as the ball leaves your hand in a serve it is in play.  So even if you don't swing at it and let it bounce it is a fault and the other players point.

So to answer you in your situation it is the other players point because you didn't complete a good serve after the ball was thrown up.

Thank you so much Alios,

This solves a lot of my problems,people used to do it over and over again,hitting the racket and going under the table and saying it has to hit both table and racket.
