If I get to the table first, while waiting I will practice ghost serving until my opponent appears.

Me too. Mainly cos its easier to get the ball as it spins back in the net on the other side (if I serve well) or it comes straight back to me not having reached the net :P :oops: :lol:

I am known for being OCD about how straight the table is and whatnot. I will usually spend a few minutes straightening the barriers, the table, the net. I'm sure they were already fine, but I'll stop when I'm satisfied. lol

Crazy TT people. We I'm convinced most of you are wacky OCD people. Weirdest sport in that regard. :D

There is probably something to it - you have to enjoy following little white ball going back and forth for quite some time, which might correlate with some OCD or what not.

Having said that - I don't have any weird pre-match rituals :( .
