if the ball is not thrown up six inches and is called by the umpire is it a point to the opponent?

Hi Phillip,

Yes the opponent gets the point.  The umpire may choose to warn the server and therefore he wouldn't lose a point  but if he calls a fault then the server loses the point.

I wish this rule was enforced more often... in circumstances where it's blatantly obvious.

It is always difficult in a club situation where players are umpiring for their team mates.
