Rules of Table Tennis (simplified)
Scoring A match is played best 3 of 5 games (or 4/7 or 5/9). For each game, the first player to reach 11 points wins that game, however a game must be won by at least a two point margin.A point is scored after each ball is put into play (not just when the server wins the point as in volleyball).
The edges of the table are part of the legal table surface, but not the sides.
Flow of the Match Each player serves two points in a row and then switch server. However, if a score of 10-10 is reached in any game, then each server serves only one point and then the server is switched. After each game, the players switch side of the table. In the final game (ie 5th game), the players switch side again after either player reaches 5 points.
Legal Service The ball must rest on an open hand palm. Then it must be tossed up at least 6 inches and struck so the ball first bounces on the server's side and then the opponent's side.If the serve is legal except that it touches the net, it is called a let serve. Let serves are not scored and are reserved.
Equipment The paddle should have a red and a black side. The ball should be either orange or white and 40 mm in size. The table should be 2.74 meters long, 1.525 m wide, and 0.76 m high.

LOG WEEK # 4(Sept. 16-23) Daily Activity Log Reflection prompt for the Week "develop personal goals to improve performance in aquatic activities"
PE classes are designed to give students the opportunity to learn, develop, and strengthen skills and knowledge of various sports and physical activities. We will be exploring different sports and activities throughout the year. Health, fitness, and nutrition will be ongoing topics in several units during the school year. The class includes both activity and lecture sessions.
- We will start and end the year with swimming.
- Racket sports (table tennis and badminton).
- Indoor and Outdoor games.
- Health, fitness, and nutrition will be ongoing throughout the year.
- Summative and formative assessments: skills and knowledge based assessments based on written, demonstrative, and oral performance.
- 60%Participation (sportsmanship, teamwork and attention to fair play), 20% Skills tasks, 20% Written tasks (activity logs, vocabulary quizzes, spots knowledge)
- Instill in students the values and skills of maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
- Help students comprehend strategies and rules in playing.
- Teach students to work as a team and develop interpersonal skills.
- Help students develop good sportsmanship skills and a healthy competitive spirit.
Participate to the best of YOUR abilities. Students are expected to bring a change of clothes specifically for PE class. They can wear clothing such as; shorts, t-shirt (long sleeve or short), sweat pants, athletic tights, athletic pants, running shoes or trainers, and socks. Students should then change back into their regular attire after washing (a towel is recommended for this purpose). Students will be expected to perform in skill and knowledge based assessments. YES, this includes quizzes, tests, and homework. Please see above.
Also students will need a 3 ring binder for handouts, vocabulary sheets, and activity logs. Please have this by Monday August 19th (this can be purchased and most stationary stores and Book city has them as well)
Making up classes and late to class....
If a student misses class for any reason at all, they will receive a zero for that day (1% of participation grade). Students can make up a class by doing one of the following activities during any "B" day lunch period; jog around the track, jump rope or participate in an ACTIVE activity. To make up a class students must participate in one of the above mentioned activities for a total of 40 minutes. This can be done over several lunch periods. After a quarter ends, students cannot make up classes from the previous quarter.
Additionally, if a student is consistently late the result will be a deduction from the participation portion of their grade at a rate of 1% per three late classes. This cannot be made up. If you are late for a legitimate reason (I.e. you were held back in the previous class) please speak to me at the end of the class and, on a case by case basis, we can account for this in you attendance record.
