      AGM: JTTA Proposal, Service rule. Ball must rise over head hight

      https://www.ittf.com/wp-content/uplo...o_2020_AGM.pdf

      To amend 2.6.2:2.6.2 The server shall then project the ball near vertically upwards, without impartingspin, so that it rises at least above their head height after leaving the palm of thefree hand and then falls without touching anything before being struck.

      Rationale:To make clearer the point of decision on fault services. But this rule will not apply for playersof elderly person or players of age below 9 years of age, different rule shall be applied

      What do you think?

      (AGM is of course also postponed)

      AGM: JTTA Proposal, Service rule. Ball must rise over head hight

      It’s unfair to tall people

      Also, what about people who squat down low while serving (tomahawk serve)?

      not a bad idea but some serves would definately be hurt such as the hook serve (sometimes played by mima ito) or reverse pendulum (sometimes played by fan zhendong). I think it is a good idea but there are definately some draw backs that will hurt players everywhere and limit the amount of possible serves there are in the game. also the exceptions to the rule make it a little to complicated. I think cameras are a good solution already.

      It is better if y0u do not let players twist their body when serving fh. Just let them toss the ballin front with no body twisting.

      I don't how good the players are in your country, but if you support this proposal then they must all be pretty good. In my experience, that rule would be impossible to enforce below coached, good level players. In this country, that's about 90% of players.
      It's simply a bad proposal and should be voted down.

      I think this proposal is genius. But only because I'm not coordinated enough to toss the ball less than about two feet, so it always goes above.my head already. Level the playing field!

      I think the ball should be launched by a little spring powered cannon. I have not yet decided if it's gonna be held in the free hand or it quickly slides below the table by a clever rail mechanism that does not get in the way.

      Also rules are pointless if they are not gonna be inforced.

      Maybe we could require players to wear a device on top of their head similar to a Golf Tee.

      When serving, the ball on the "Tee" on top of the head, so the player must squat, shoot the ball into the air and a little to the side, adjust to the ball mid-air, and serve it.

      Think about it... this would add SO MUCH FLAIR and style to the game. maybe give bonus points for style on serve to take back the advantage of serve...

      some players like Calderano never have problem with serve because they toss high and never hide ball. Other players should do same
