Great stuff.

Did the shoe qualify as a legal bat? I guess not. 

More importantly, if in a rally the ball hits my thumb but is a good return, is that legal? I believe it is. But does the ball have to hit the bat as well as my thumb?

But if a player drops his bat can he continue the rally with his hand?

If there is no legal minimum bat size then presumably the bat can be infinitely small. And if the ball doesn't have to hit the bat to be a legal shot, then a player could play with his hand.

Hi Coach,

How to do that shots at 2:35 and 2:45?

And secondly why most of the funny things are given to Alois ?tongue-out

Hi Tushar,

It is an around the net shot.  It is basically a topspin shot but you need to put a bit of sidespin on the ball to help it to get around the net post.

Hi Bryan,

The shoe does not qualify as a bat. In the rally the ball can hit your thumb as long as you have the bat in your hand. It can hit any part of your hand from the wrist down and doesn't actually have to hit the bat, but as I said you must have the bat in your hand so if you drop the bat you must pick it up to continue the rally. However as you mention, technically you could get a really small bat and then play with your hand since the bat was so small that you never actually use it!

what a fantastic presentation. Please how can I improve my backhand using returning board thanks

Hi Abiodun,

I have found return board a little difficult to use.  It is much easier if you get a partner to hit with or even someone to feed multi ball to you.

Hi Alois & Jeff,

I love to see those demonstrations.  I wish one day I would be able to hit the tennis ball like you. 

Thank you
