If a ball bounces off the top of the net post, is it out of bounds or inbounds and still playable? Keep up the good work, Tom. Love your videos!
The net post is considered part of the playing area. So if a ball hits the net post and then is redirected on the table, it is a valid shot and the ball should be played.
It very rarely happens, but when it does, the player receiving the shot is so surprised, he/she usually messes up. It’s a really welcome bit of luck!
