What is it called when a player hits the ball with the front of the racket?

There are two sides to the stringing pattern within the head of a tennis racket. The side of the stringing pattern which is used to strike the tennis ball is called the racket face. An easy way to remember this is to think of the racket "face" as having eyes. Eyes are a normal part of a face. The eyes of the racket face must see the approaching tennis ball, just prior to string-to-ball contact. I always use a black permanent marker pen to draw a face with eyes, nose, and a mouth on my teaching tennis racket.

In table tennis is it a good return if ball is hit buy the side of the recket?

Yes. Rule 2.05.07 states that... "A player strikes the ball if he touches it in play with his racket, held in the hand, or with his racket hand below the wrist." This means that all of the following are legal and will constitute a good return. You can hit the ball with ... * the rubber on your table tennis racket, or * the edge of your table tennis racket, or * the handle of your table tennis racket, or * any part of your racket hand below the wrist, including the fingers of your racket hand

Different parts of a racket?

There are three parts of a tennis racquet. The part that you hold is the "grip". Above the grip is the "neck". Someone who holds their tennis racket by the neck is said to be "choking" their racquet; this is not the correct way to play. The part that you hit the ball with (and the largest part of the racquet) is called the "head". The part makes up the head is the "rim". As for a badminton racquet, I would assume that it's very similar.

How many strings on a tennis racket?

This depends on what you mean by "how many". If you mean how many individual pieces of string are used when stringing a racket the number would probably be one or two pieces. If by how many you wish to know the number of times the strings cross the head or the racket, the answer would vary by racket. The number of times the strings cross is called the "string pattern". To know this information you would have to look on the racket, probably around the throat and look for a number that looks something like "16x18" that means that there are 16 crosses and 18 mains. (Crosses span the narrower part of the head and can be described as running horizontally. The mains span the longer part of the head and are can be described as running vertically.)
