In table tennis, you score a point by keeping the ball in play longer than your opponent. If your opponent misses a ball you served or hit last, you get a point. However, make sure the ball bounces off of your side of the table and then bounces again off your opponent’s side of the table.
Furthermore, what are the rules for singles in table tennis?

2021 bat colour rule change
Prior to 2021, the laws of table tennis specified that one side of the bat must be red and the other black. However, in 2021 the rules were offcially amended so that blue, green, yellow and pink bats could be used as well as red ones. Nevertheless, one side must still remain black.
