Could you please clarify the below questions for TT doubles:
1. While serving, if the first bounce of the ball is in my partners court and then hits the net and falls in the correct opponent's court, is it a let serve or does the opponent get a point?
2. While serving, if the first bounce is in the correct court, but the ball hits the net and falls in the wrong opponent's court, is it considered a let serve or does the opponent get a point?
3. In both these situations, if there is a dispute on where the ball has landed, what is the best way to resolve the dispute. Consider it as a re-serve or give the benefit of doubt to the server or take a vote?
Thank you very much.
1. This is a let as it is a correct serve apart from the fact it hits the net on the way over.
2. This is a fault and the receiver gets the point as it hasn't bounced in the correct side of the table.
3. The umpire, if there is one, rules on where the ball lands. If there is no umpire then it is more a matter of coming to a solution between the players. Play a let is usually the best way to go in a non official situation.
