Thread: Serving Rule 9.1.8 - Huh???

Gollum nailed it - Almost
Gollum splits the original wording into two sentences. Nice - and so much better.
However, he could have gone even further.
Simply loose the redundant clutter all together.
irst: Why is the rule there?
To rob extremely tall players of an unfair advantage. (or to prevent me from making a pair of killer service boots with 40 cm soles) You would have to be at least 215 cm to serve downwards from below your waiste.
The only reason for rule 9.1.8 is to eliminate such smash services.
"The flight of the shuttle must be upwards from the server's racket."
That's it. The rest of the rule is already covered by the general description of when a stroke is good or fault. When is the shuttle in or out? The shuttle must pass over the net etc. etc.
