Hello, I'm Elie from Gilbert Table Tennis Center, and today I'm going to tell you about easy rules for table tennis. To start playing table tennis, you will need a partner, you will need two rackets, one racket for every person, and a table tennis ball, table tennis table with the net. And, then you can proceed and start playing. So, the rules would go, each person serves two services. So, I would serve first service, like this. And, when I serve, the ball has to hit my side first, and then the partner's side. So, I serve two. After that, I'm going to receive two. After that, we keep going with the score until a person reaches 11 points. So, whoever reaches 11 points first is the winner of the game, unless the score is 10-10. So, when the score is 10-10, we have to switch the service every single point. So, let's say 10-10, I serve, 11-10, then I give the service away. And, on deuce, we have to stay two points apart. So, it has to be either 12-10, or 13-11, or 14-12, and so on. So, it cannot only be 11-10. So, by international standards, the game has to be, the match has to consist of seven games, not seven, but best of seven. Let's say the person has to win either four-zero, four-one, four-two, or four-three. To be more simple, you can play best of five, that's very common, too. In that case, you have to win first three games, three-zero, three-one, or three-two. And, one more thing to mention, in single matches, if it's me and just somebody else, a person, you can serve anywhere on table. So, don't look at this white line in the middle. So, you can serve anywhere on a table, so that's fine. And, I'm Elie from Gilbert Table Tennis Center. And today, I told you about easy rules for table tennis. Thank you.
