I would like to know the following-

If my apponent hits the ball out past the table and I hit it back before it bounces and that ball is in. Does the play go on? Or do i get the point because my opponent hit it out first.

Thank you

Hi Divan,

That is your point.  As soon as the ball goes out past the table without bouncing it is your point, even if the ball is hit after that.

This is the rule that causes the most problems at a school or club level.
