hello there...

I just had a weird idea. in receiving the ball, and it hits your hand that holds the racket, its legal isnt it? what if you do it on purpose? is it still legal? I am thinking of doing this to return unpredictable services... :D

Hi Gian,

This is legal but difficult to do and win a point using it.  Even if you can do it the other player will be able to hit it easily.

I think you are better off to stick with the racket.
