Tennis Tip of the Month by MCTC Coach Carl Bergquist

USTA RULE FAQs, Part I

Part II in March 2020

It's that time of year when almost anyone looking to play team tennis is playing USTA league. If you are not already on a team check with the front desk about possible options. It is also the time of year when random rules come up that many players simply don't know. Below are a few common, but infrequent rule questions and answers.

Who calls a double bounce?

Depends on whcih direction the ball was traveling when it double bounced. If a ball is traveling at Player A and bounces twice before they hit it back over the net, Player A has to call it on themself. Player B can point it out though. If Player A runs up and gets to the ball on one bounce, then hits it into their ground and it bounces over the net, Player B can make that call.

Can I reach across the net after hitting a ball?

Yes. You must make contact on your side of the net, but your swing can finish across the net. A lot of players think that the swing over the net is illegal, it is not. Note that you or your racquet can still NOT touch the net.

Can I touch the net?

Yes, but only after the ball has bounced twice or hit the curtain/ceiling.

Can I hit the ball twice?

Yes, in fact multiple times. However, the swing has to be one continuous motion.
