General Rules for Table Tennis from Stiga.
How to Serve Legally in Table Tennis from Greg Letts, Your Guide to Table Tennis / Ping-Pong, About.com. Includes photos for Correct and Incorrect Ways to Hold the Ball Before Serving. "The top left method is legal, since the palm is open and flat, allowing the ball to rest freely... The free hand must also be stationary when beginning the serve, so it is illegal for a player to pick up the ball and throw it into the air for service, without pausing to hold the free hand stationary before tossing the ball... The server shall then project the ball near vertically upwards, without imparting spin, so that it rises at least 16cm (6.3 inches) after leaving the palm of the free hand and then falls without touching anything before being struck." See illustrations.
