Your opponent runs forward from mid-court to play the ball. She hits the ball after it bounces. After she hits the ball, it goes across the net and hits you in the shoulder. After you get hit with the ball, her momentum takes her through the non-volley zone; and to arrest her momentum, she reaches out and grabs the net post. What is the call? 🤔
This is a fault on you for getting hit with the ball. The rule that governs this is 7.I. The natural question many will have is “Why isn’t grabbing the net post a fault?” The reason is because as soon as the ball hit you, it became a ‘dead ball’. After the dead ball occurs, players can touch the net, net post, the opponent’s court, etc.
