My name is Tahl Leibovitz and I’m here at
SPiN, New York. I am a professional table tennis player who
has been competing internationally since 1995. I am here today to speak to you about the
intermediate and beginner aspects of the Olympic sport of table tennis. I’m now going to demonstrate how to serve
in table tennis. I’m actually known throughout the world as
having very legal services so, the thing is what we need is to do is first we need to
stand behind the end line. When we serve, we cannot have our racket over
this white line. Our racket’s got to be behind the white line
so that’s the first important thing. Secondly, our palm has to be completely open. We can’t cup it like this, we have to have
the ball in our palm and it has to be open and behind the line. Third, we need to throw the ball at least
six inches. It can’t move like this. It has to stay here, six inches. Fourth, which is really important and they
just changed the rule, we cannot hide the ball. I’m going to demonstrate an illegal serve
which is the way players used to play. They used to serve here and serve under their
arm. We can’t do that anymore. Now what we need to do is we need to serve
here and move our hand so that’s uh one way for a legal service. So what we’re doing is we’re, we’re starting
the ball- it’s in the palm of our hand or behind the white line, we’re throwing the
ball six inches and then we’re just moving our hand and making sure nothing obstructs
uh the ball. A lot of players, you know, when they’re starting
out they like to try to serve the ball like this, like right out of their hand. In a legal official tournament, that won’t
be legal because you’re gonna have an umpire and a referee on each side and they can see
exactly what you’re doing and they’re going to expect that you keep the ball in your palm
throw the ball six inches and you don’t hide the ball and that’s the legal service.

    Who the fuck brags about having a legal serve. I pretty sure no one can be known for doing something that everyone else does fine.
