Hi Enoch,

If the ball goes off the end of the table and then he hits the ball then it is his point because the first mistake was that the ball went off the table.  If however, the ball is still in play over the table and then he hits it before it bounces, it is your point.  So the thing to consider is where is the ball when the other player contacts it, over the table or past the table.
