Hi Jeff and Alois!

My question is about a rule in table tennis. I know if someone touch the table with the hand or another part of body, the opponent gets a point. But how about if I only touch the table with the bat? 

Sorry if my english is bad :D

Hi Maria,

Actually you are allowed to touch the table with anything except your free hand. So if you touch the table with another part of your body it is still OK.  If you touch the table with you bat this is also OK.
