The most common rally length (called the mode, in statistics) is 1! That’s a service ace or a service winner (i.e. the returner makes an error off the serve). This happens about 30% of the time. The next most common rally length is 3 – that’s a serve, return and one more shot.
Just so, what does rally scoring mean in table tennis?
When returning the serve, or during a rally, if the ball hits the net but does not hit your opponent’s half of the table, then a point is awarded to your opponent. However, if the ball hits the net but still goes over and bounces on your opponent’s half of the table, the rally continues.
Secondly, what is the highest rally in table tennis?
How many shots is a rally?
That’s stunning, to say the least… There were slightly more extended rallies of nine shots or longer in New York than Paris.

The tiebreaker gave tennis a definite “finish line”. In what follows, the “final set” means the fifth set for best-of-five matches, and the third set for best-of-three matches. … In 1989, the Davis Cup adopted the tie-break in all sets except for the final set, and then extended it to the final set starting in 2016.
you may not touch the table with your non-paddle hand. You may touch the ball or the table with your paddle hand (after reaching in to return a short serve, for example), or other parts of your body. NOTE: If the table moves at all from your touching it during a rally, that is your opponent’s point.
The receiver can stand wherever he deems ok. So it is perfectly legal to serve from way outside the sidelines of the table, provided the ball remains behind the end line at the start of the serve. In practice, this is not done very often since it can put the server out of position for the rest of the rally.
The ball must first bounce on your side and then in your opponents. Your opponent must allow the ball to hit their side of the table before trying to return this. The ball must pass cleanly over the net – if it ‘clips’ the net and goes over, it is a ‘let’ and the serve is retaken.
In tennis terms, a volley occurs when a player hits the ball directly out of the air, not allowing the ball to bounce on the court first. If the ball hits the ground and the player uses a groundstroke (forehand or backhand) that is considered a rally.
A rally in tennis is a collective name given to a sequence of back and forth shots between players, within a point. A rally starts with the serve and the return of the serve, followed by continuous return shots until a point is scored which ends the rally.
That is known as volley or “obstruction”, and it’s an illegal shot in table tennis. If you do this, you lose the point. To make it easier to remember, let’s put it like this: you are not allowed to hit the ball while it’s on its way to bounce on the table.
