Hi PingSkills Team
Firstly,i apologize if I am asking too much questions :(
I just have another two questions:
1)What rules are applied in a mixed double,when one player is on the wheelchair and the second one is a highly mobile player?
2)also-any advice how to play a wheelchair player, while he simply will not loop at me, he knows just pushing with spin variation and short blocking, thus preventing both looping and defense, because he keeps the ball low, half-short, but does not play really passively but also he does not actively attack even the highest balls.
How to deal with such a player?
(I have lost with a half of a player recently)
Here is an answer to the first rule which is in the ITTF Handbook for Match Officials. http://www.ittf.com/URC/PDF/HMO_15th_edition.pdf
This also applies when a “mixed” pair (one standing and one wheelchair) are playing together. Either player may return the ball (after initial service and return), but each player has to remain in his or her own half of the court. No part of the player’s wheelchair can cross the imaginary extension of the centre line and the standing player cannot put a foot over this line either.
You need to serve the ball so that it would go off the endline of the table but after that you can use angles to make it more difficult.
