The umpire/referee was from their team and didn't think anything was wrong. But in the end I suggested we replay the point. Anyway, thanks for the clarification on the rules. Good to know.

Hi all. I was an empire, and we empires are kidding about the most strange cases.

A very weird case is this:

What happens if a ball remains stopped on a net post in a middle of a point?

What do you think? (It was happed once at least). :lol:

You, the umpire, wander over to the net post & bump it so the ball falls off it. Whether the ball lands on the table or the floor you call a let as an outside event (something not caused by the players etc) has occurred to affect the course of the point. (For added kudos you could then give yourself a yellow card :) )

Treat it the same as if it comes to rest on the floor since the net post is not a part of the table.

I believe the net assembly is part of the net, so I would also call it a let.

I do cycling and i use that type of clothes to play TT and running shoes, of course i've not done any serious play (tournament) but could i use cycling bibs and/or jersey in a tournment ¿or even a skinsuit lol? (In fact i want to know if' i'm allowed to use my cycling jersey cause is made of dryfit and it's pretty comfortable, for the shorts i guess any running short will do it right?)

I love it!
+5 for creativity
+5 for being 100% valid
+10 for having the integrity to give yourself a yellow card! :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Net post is a part of the net.

There are 2 possible actions:

- Let.
- Or you wait until the expedite system, and then it's let.

no long sleeves is a rule I believe
and probably no problems wearing Cycling shorts under other shorts

After a 36 years break, I'm playing TT again (or at least trying to play). I have played only in two occasions so far, but I'll be playing two or three times a week from now on.

I'm a penholder and, in my first session, the paddle has injured the skin of my middle finger. I solved the issue in my second session with a band-aid, but since then I became really curious about this: would be legal to wear a glove in the paddle hand? I have removed the thumb of a glove and it seems it could work - not improving my game of course, but at least giving me more confidence.

I do not intend to play tournaments, but of course I want to follow the rules - "just because". But the ITTF book of rules is mute about this.

I don't think anyone would care for social table tennis, but maybe some extra sanding or adding a cork placement for comfort will help

I know two women that use a glove and have never been called on it in a tourney. :)

Thank you for your answers. :)

These are surely the best solutions, but my lack of experience in this field and the relative lack of proper materials in my country does not help. :(

That's great news! But I would feel even better knowing that some men are using gloves too... :oops:

If someone is really injured, I think it would be legal. There are a lot of disabled players who use gloves.
