Noob question – rules when there is an open second floor viewing area on the back wall.
Pretty basic and straight forward… the place I play at has the open (but netted) second floor viewing area on the back wall… What are the rules if you hit it and it comes all the way back and goes in that area?

What do I do when the plastic grip on the Ektelon racquet tears away?
There's a plastic covering on the standard Ektelon racquets. What do you do when the plastic starts tearing away? People have told me before to "replace" the grip. What does that mean? Does that mean you take off ALL the plastic and then redo the whole grip? One time I bought some grips and it was either the do-it-yourself wrapping tape which came out terrible and was awfully slippy, or a slide-it-over condom style approach which again came out terribly. I want to replace the tearing plastic with a professional job, like a new racquet is.
Also, many years ago a friend helped me buy a racquet. Before I ever played with it, he put a plastic protector over the grip. Then when the protector decayed away after a year of playing, I took the protector off and the original racquet looked nearly brand new. Have you guys ever done this yourself or heard of others doing it?
Overall the grip thing just confuses me 🙂

A question of hinders
I'm a casual player and not ever very good but I've had something come up a few times I'm curious about.
Scenario: I am standing dead center of court. Opponent is standing a few feet to to my right. The ball comes to me off the back wall and I return it so that it comes back past me on my left. It passes me about knee- to waist-high.
In this situation my opponent would have to go through me to get to the ball. He can't because I am there and can't move out of the way in the 0.1 seconds it takes for my shot to return. My opponent maybe even lunges into me trying to get to the ball. He misses and calls a hinder.
Is this a hinder? In casual games I don't mind too much and just replay but occasionally something like this happens where the opponent calls a hinder when I think my shot just was a good one for the court situation.
What do y'all do in that situation?
