Hi coach, this might be a weird type of question but if i would throw the racket and hit the ball and the ball goes over to the oponents side of the table, would it be accepted or not?

(i will not start throwing rackets here and there if the answer is yes, i was just wondering)

Hi Sebastian,

Unfortunately this is not a good shot.  The racket must be in your hand when you hit the ball.

good question.  I often throw my racquet at the ball if it's out of reach.  This at least clarifies what happens if I ever successfully return the ball using this method.

If it is not allowed, why do people do it??

I guess out of desperation.
