What happens if you drop your paddle during a play?

Hi Andrew,

You can pick it up again but you aren't allowed to hit the ball if you haven't got the paddle in your hand.

Also, Jeff was putting his free-hand on the table! :]

Nice pickup Ian. Luckily for me Alois hit the ball with his hand before I put my free hand on the table so I'm going to claim the point!
