Diary of a 10-Year-Old (Part II)

By Sarah Jalli

It is a great experience to be at the 2016 Womens World Cup. I arrived on Friday and watched a few group matches. Here are a few things that I learned from watching the group matches. 
1. Most of the players's serves are half long and short.
2. Most of the players used their surprise serve at key points. Their surpise serves were often long and fast with some variation of spin.

New Table Tennis Rule

Read the Details!

Dear Players,
Starting on October 1st, the ITTF rules of table tennis will be changed to permit advice between points. This rule has been tested for several years in the German professional league, and will now apply to almost all competition worldwide.
However, upon advice from various committees, the USATT Board of Directors has voted not to apply the new rule to domestic tournaments. For normal USATT sanctioned tournaments, the old coaching rule will apply; advice between points will not be permitted.
