In this video we can see a range of scenarios at an amateur level:
Decision 2: LET – The striker attempts to move out of the path of the ball and the ball is deeper into the back of the court. The opponent is impeded on his path to the ball.
Decision 3: STROKE – This is a dangerous situation, the striker has played the ball and moves to the right but is still very close to the path of the ball. The opponent should have stopped play and asked for a let and would be given a stroke. The opponent continues to play on and hits the other players racket, this is a stroke, but she is also given a warning for dangerous play.
Decision 4: STROKE – The striker plays the ball and moves into its path so the opponent has no direct site to the ball.
Decision 5: STROKE: - The striker makes a minor attempt to move away from the ball but directly in the line of the ball he hit at himself. The opponent is there ready to play a shot.
Decision 6: A WARNING: This is a warning for dangerous play as the player has no idea where his opponent is as he is facing backwards and attempts a very dangerous shot between his legs. CRAZY...
Scenario 7: The lady mid court should have asked for a let and not hit the backhand volley drop. She would have been given a stroke decision as her opponent was directly in front of her and should have access to hit to the front wall.
Scenario 8: Let + Warning: The player returning the serve did an air swing at the ball and then turned 180 degrees and played a dangerous shot with his backhand. In this scenario when you turn, stop and ask for a let. If you do continue play depending on the position of your opponent, you may be given a warning for dangerous play. If you hit the opponent with the ball after turning, it is a stroke to your opponent + warning.
Decision 9: WARNING – never ever throw your racket on court, it has feelings! You will also receive a warning for racket abuse.
Decision 10: NO LET. The player in yellow is in no way ready to play a shot, let alone a winning shot. It is an afterthought to ask for a let as the ball goes past him.
*Remember if you feel it is a dangerous situation stop and ask for a let, SAFETY COMES FIRST!
