What happens if the tennis ball hits a player outside the court without a bounce?
Here is the link to the official USTA tennis rules: http://www.usta.com/AboutUs/~/media/USTA/Document%20Assets/2007/02/09/doc_13_16051.ashx Under Section 24. Player Loses Point (page 19), The point is lost if: The ball in play touches the player or anything that the player is wearing or carrying, except the racket; This rule does not specify whether the player is inside or outside of the court. This means that it doesn't matter if the player is inside or outside of the court. As long as the player touches the ball with his body or clothing, s/he loses the point. This interpretation can be verified at the following site: http://www.collinscompany.com/Tennis_Court_Equipment_And_Supplies/Tennis_Rule_20.asp Under section g., there is a comment on this rule, which states: USTA Comment: This loss of point occurs regardless of whether the tennis player is inside or outside the bounds of his tennis court when the tennis ball touches him. Writer's comment: Even though the ball is clearly out if the player was hit by the ball when s/he was standing outside of the court, the player whom was hit by the ball still loses the point because s/he touches the ball with his body or clothing, which ends the point.

If the ball hits the net and goes over during a serve, it is called a let and is not counted as a fault. If it doesn't go over it is counted as a fault. In play, if the b…all touches the net but goes over it is counted and a point is given to the player who hit it; if a ball hits the net but it doesn't make it over, a point is given to the receiving player.
The tennis ball is distorted from its round shape when it hits the ground, which means the volume inside is reduced or the air inside is being compressed. The air then pushes …back to restore the tennis ball's original shape and therefore bounces off the ground.
As the gas heats up the particles move faster. Causing the ball to bounce and move faster.
According to the rules of the International Tennis Federation (ITF): "When dropped onto a concrete base from 100 inches, the ball should bounce more than 53 inche…s but less than 58 inches."
It depends on the player but normally it would be about 88.6mph.
penn, Wilson, dunlop and gamma all bounce good, but I would say that penn bounces the best
Tennis balls have a high bounce because the pressure inside the ball is greater then the pressure outside of the ball.
about 45 to 59 inches high
The dry tennis ball will bounce higher, if you use the same amount of force, the wet tennis ball will slide a bit when it hits the ground and bounce lower. In short, the weig…ht of the water will make the tennis ball heavier, with the weight of the water keeping it from bouncing as high.
In Table Tennis
The player who played the shot loses the point.
It squashes somewhat against the strings of the racquet. As energy is also instilled and released, it also warms up a little.
According to an experiment for a school assignment that I for maths,a rubber ball bounces higher than a tennis ball- well the balls that I used. Here is a table in which I col…lected my data. These balls were dropped from one (1) meter, the bounce back has been recorded. I hope this will help you! :) Test No. | Rubber Ball | Tennis Ball / Test 1 | 65cm | 49cm / Test 2 | 76cm | 50cm / Test 3 | 76cm | 49cm / Test 4 | 79cm | 52cm / Test 5 | 72cm | 55cm / Test 6 | 73cm | 50cm / Test 7 | 75cm | 55cm / Test 8 | 77cm | 54cm / Test 9 | 74cm | 56cm / Test 10 | 79cm | 58cm / Average | 74.6cm | 53.2cm
It is considered a legally batted ball subject to being a fair or foul ball. Also, if a pitched ball bounces in the dirt and strikes the batter, the ball is dead and the… batter receives first base as he was legally hit by a pitched ball.
In tennis a ball is hit and backspins into your court without the opponent touching the ball Who's point is it?
Answer The person who never hit the ball would get the point.
