Hello Alois

I have just watched the Utube of you and Jeff and a question I have had put to me which I have had varying answers. My question. Is it legal to have both hands on the bat at the same time when returning a ball, as you see all the time in Tennis. Bruce Baulch

Hi Bruce,

As far as I know you are allowed to use both hands.  The only time you have to have a free hand is when you are serving so that you can throw the ball up.

You can swap hands as well if you so desire. 

I will put this one to our panel of experts and see what I get.
