In case the ball goes very wide and far away from the board, when I return the ball, should it go to the opposite side over the net or can it go away from the net while landing on the opposite side?

Hi Mohan,

The ball doesn't have to go over the net to be in play.  So if you are far away form the table and really wide you can hit the ball around the net.

I like this shot :D

Though,how should I alter it when doing it off a "short" serve (has its second "bounce"  about 30cm next to the sideline)?
