Best Answer

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.

Of course, you could set up an experiment that involves a ping pong ball and a golf ball, but you have not described such an experiment.
