Smashing a ball the net sets up for me

Hey PingSkills,

So sometimes when I play, I accidentally make the ball touch the net. The opponent, having to dive towards the net to return it, makes the ball very easy for me to win the point by smashing it.

But I don't know if it is very nice to smash a ball like that. Should I return the ball normally, or win the point?

Hi Andrew,

That is all part of the game.  It is OK to smash the ball away.  Sometimes that ball will hit the net and just come over and make it impossible for you to get to it so it all balances out.
