You can hit the ball with either side of the racket (paddle) as long as it has an authorised covering on it. Also, one side must be red and the other side black. If a side does not have an authorised covering, but is painted red or black instead, you cannot use that side to hit the ball.
The game ping pong is also knows as table tennis and has been played for centuries. It got its name from the sound the ball makes as it hits each side of the table.
One sheet of rubber will cover one side of a blade.
toss the ball in the air, swing your paddle and hit the ball on your side of the table, it must bounce over the net and hit the other side of the table to be a valid serve.
You can find the ping pong balls from Trent (on the left side of Duncan), Duncan, Owen (left side of the kitchen), and Harold.
In side of a ping pong ball, there is nothing except a vacuum of air. Also, there is a flammable liquid, which is used by daredevils to make smoke grenades
Yes. You can step to the side of the table to return the ball.

No. You only have to serve from the right hand side if you're playing doubles.
There is a bracket on each side that you screw into the bottom of the table. There should be directions if you buy a new net. Then you have to make sure the net is tight.
Take a ping pong ball and mark an 'X' on it. This 'X' will represent the side of the moon we can see in the night sky from Earth. Naturally, the opposite side of the ping pong ball will represent the side we cannot see from Earth (the far side of the moon). Get a basketball. This will represent the Earth. Take the ping pong ball and make the 'X' face the basketball. Move the ping pong ball around the basketball while keeping the 'X' facing the same direction you started with-do not rotate the ping pong ball. You are simulating the moon orbiting the Earth. If you watch where the 'X' is while the ping pong ball is circling the basketball, you will notice that at some point, all sides of the ping pong ball will end up facing the basketball-this is also what would happen if the moon did not rotate. We would be able to see all sides of the moon. The ping pong ball is not rotating hence we would be able to see all sides of the moon (including the far side). We cannot see about one-half of the moon at any time so we know that it must rotate-it's just that one side is always facing us (due to tidal locking).
