My doubles partner and I played our first doubles match in a meet yesterday on our high school's JV team, visiting another high school about an hour away from home. We had a good match against our opponents, but it really annoyed me when one of them would constantly make contact with the ball very close to or across the net. If it's a close call, should I call a foul? What is the correct procedure for calling a foul for reaching across the net? There was another situation later in the match where the server on the other team hit a baseline groundstroke. He didn't get a lot of power on the ball, so it was going to be very close as to if the ball would go across the net. Once it did go across the net (only several inches across), the returner on my team was preparing to hit a volley. However, the server's partner on their team was holding his racket way to close to the net, but wasn't crossing it. He seemed to be so close to the net, as if preparing to hit the ball before we could for some odd reason. Because the server's partner was so close, my partner was faced with two choices: (1) hit a volley and risk injuring the server's partner and/or damaging his racket or (2) not hit a volley in order to avoid any injuries for the server's partner. He chose to do #2. Technically, should this have been our point even though the server's partner didn't cross the net?
