Ridiculous

If it looks like my partner is going to be late getting to those lobs, I am going to start tossing my paddle toward where I think the ball will land. Hopefully, the paddle will slide along the ground and the bounce off my paddle will give my partner time to make the return.

To eliminate inconsistency, just say in 11.H., “If any item, except paddle ….”

I agree. Not critical, but does clear up the language.

Disagree with this proposed change. It's adding something to the rules that would happen once in 10 million matches. So, referees and players would read this, try to figure it out, discuss and ponder something that will never happen. And if it did, the referee would deal with it properly - paddles drops, ball hits paddle, player hits ball ... play on!

In my mind it is more a matter of possession. If it was stated that a player must be in possession of his paddle when he strikes the ball; it allows for the paddle his partner dropped to become part of the court.

I disagree with this proposed change. The paddle should be in possession of the player at all times. Simply clarify that Rule 11.O supercedes Rule 11.H.
