What should be the minimum height for the toss?
And what if the server fails to achieve that minimum height? Can he be penalised in form of a point or is there something like a warning?
The ball has to go up 16cm from the hand in the service. Here is an extract from the ITTF rules.
|2.06.02||The server shall then project the ball near vertically upwards, without imparting spin, so that it rises at least 16cm after leaving the palm of the free hand and then falls without touching anything before being struck.|
The umpire can warn them if they don’t throw it up enough. If they do it repeatedly, they can be faulted and a point awarded to the opponent.
