I was telling a member of our club about the answer to the question I asked here today about crossing over to the opponents side of the court and he told me what happened in last Wednesdays fixtures.

A player hit the ball which travelled along the top of the net before hitting the net post, dropping onto the net posts metal framework on the opponents side of the net and falling to the ground.  At no point did it hit the table surface on the opponents side - it just hit the lower net frame which extends beyond the tables surface on the opponents side.

Who's point is this?

Thank you,

Hi Peter,

The net post is considered part of the net.  So that would mean that the ball hasn't hit the table so it would be a point against the player hitting the ball.

Hope this clears it up.
