Hi coach.

Can you please make a video that show's legal and nonlegal points?

I saw in your Will see/Won't see video that you made a point(on the will see part)by getting the ball to the other side by bringing it under the net and i always have been told that that's a nonlegal point 'cos there is an "invisible continue of the net that the ball need's to go above" and i got really confused.

I want to know every way that the ball will hit the other side and it will be/won't be my point(including serves).

Hi Orel,

It is perfectly OK for the ball to go around the net.  I definitely doesn't have to go over the net or an imaginary extension of that line.

We have a lesson on our Youtube channel on Essential Table Tennis Rules that will help you out.
