If the ball hits anything except the table it is out. So even if the ceiling is low, it would still be the end of the point.
I need to clarify this point. I understand that if player 1 returns the ball and before it reaches his opponents side, it hits the ceiling, that is an obvious point for player 2. However, if player 1 smashes the ball hard onto his opponent's side, so hard that it bounces up to the ceiling, then it is less clear to me whose point this is.
Having it hit the ceiling after smashing on the opponent's side seems no different than if it were to be smashed and then proceed to fly across the room to the wall. Isn't this a fair point for the player 1 who smashed the ball even though it hit the ceiling?
Yes you are right. If the ball hits the ceiling before player 2 can get to it, Player 1 wins the point.
