The game of ping- pong is made up of extreme skill and a tiny bit of luck. Like tennis there are more any a few ways to return or serve the ball. The most common returns and serves are front hand, back hand, side hand and right to left serve. Ping- pong is not hard to learn, but takes some time to get used to and get the "touch". There are many factors that play into how well you are able to return and serve the ball on servers you can hit it your way starting out which gives you more control on how my how spin there is on the ball and which direction it is heading in. Another factor that is a huge part of the game is whether or not you have a heavy paddle or a light one and how the paddle is cushioned. Also how you hold your paddle and how far away from the tank you stand. You can put many different types of spin on the ball and can make the ball go the ways you want it too, if you know how to use your paddle. There are so many factors that can change the game and the style that you have to play so you have to know counter and know a few different ways to play. To start the game there's a few ways to get the ball from the paddle game to just rallying until you win the rally, that's just to get the ball. Once you get the ball you change the ball every five serves and you, you can serve and score on all you services, but so can you opponent if your not smart and careful. You play the game to twenty-one. One thing that happens a lot is called a net ball, it's usually on services and the serve is redone if that happens. If a net ball happens during the rally in the game and it goes of the net and the other person can't return it it's counted as a score.
