Definition: According to ITTF rules, a let is a rally of which the result is not scored.

Possible causes of lets include the ball hitting the net assembly during a service, before touching the opponent's court, if play is interrupted by the umpire, or if a player serves before his opponent is ready, provided the opponent does not try to strike the ball.
