Off the wall

Craig Baguley Asked 2 years ago

We were playing in an enclosed space (squash court) and my opponent made a wild mishit. The ball hit the wall first, then landed on the net and trickled on to my side and I couldn't return it. Whose point is that? If the answer is that it's my opponent's point, whose point would it be if the ball had hit the wall and come down on my side of the table without touching the net? Thanks.

Hi Craig,

As soon as it touches something other than the table or net it is out of play and the players that hit the ball loses the point.  That happens even if it hits the net on the way through after hitting something else.
