    At the moment my personal favorite is Rule 77. You are not allowed to signal to a doubles partner what serve you will use unless you actually know how to execute more than one serve.

    Recall the following:

    Rule 16. You are required to serve legally which is sometimes whatever an umpire decides is legal (which in turn may require invocation of Rule 6).


    Rule 17 However you may not post threads on TT forums complaining about opponents who serve illegally.

    The gods require:

    Supplement 9. You are not allowed to complain about legality of pro player's serves either, especially comments such as " they all serve illegally" or berating umpires for failure to enforce your particular interpretation of the ITTF rules ( note small r there).

    See also Rule 6.

    People need reminding of rules. No mental games. No complaining. No thanking people. No sweating on the table. No hats. No black socks. No cho-ing ( unless you are paid to win). And more.

    Obey Rule 88!

    I already showed you the vid of the "Red Socks of Horror" made at my former Korean club... those socks were terrifying indeed.

    Only a burnt offering to the Table Tennis Gods will suffice to save you from their wrath. Perhaps a blade you don't use? This of course affords you the opportunity to buy TWO more (because n + 1).

    100. Obey the rules!!

    Could someone please go into more details about rule # 88? I feel like the guidelines might be too narrow and the rule may need to be broadened a little so that it is applicable in more circumstances.

    It is akin to the sound of one hand "clapping".

    6. Harden the f^#k up. Whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
    I have been thinking more and more about the wisdom and depth of experience behind this rule. This one shows me that the TT Gods really are omniscient.

    I would cite it in response to many threads but do not wish to appear tedious. Of course all of The Rules are based on Wisdom.

    If that quote made it into one of Greg Letts' vids (the types of forum memebrs), then there is something to it.

    I think these rules need to be reviewed by some of the newer members.
