Good evening Alois, above is a link to a video of a player over balancing after his shot and touching the table, is this a legal play or not?

Hi Ross,

Once the point is over it is fine to touch the table.  Just by listening to the ball here it sounds like the ball has touched something else after the table before he touches the table. That would mean the  point is finished by the time he touches the table.

It is hard to tell here but it is probably legal.

I recognise that hall in Hamilton... great stadium.
