Local Call: Secure Your Stuff

LocalCallStuffDropLet’s take this time to clarify a common misconception in the game at all levels. Many players aren’t aware that if they drop an accessory—their eyewear or anything other than their racquet—that they automatically lose that point. The only exception would be if it was after interference with their opponent that forced the object to drop on the court. Take note that if nobody notices the fallen object, the the result of the rally shall stand; however, if noticed, the point should be stopped immediately and the point awarded against the player that dropped the object.
