Change method (Time game)
Time game (colloquially for change method) is used when one set has not been finished after 10 minutes and within this set have not been played at least 18 points. With the change method the right to serve is changing after each point. The winning point is given as in the normal match – with one exception: when the opponent of the server has returned the ball 13 times successfully he gets the point. This means the ball is played back and forth 13 times maximum. For further sets to be played the change method is used again.
The clasps serve for the stabilisation of the stand legs in the storage as well as in the playing positions. By lifting the metal hook, the safety devices unlock themselves and the stand legs of the table can be folded inward. Through a strong push of the metal stick, the diagonal support clasps lock audibly into place.
