The new rule is that if you call a ball out, then realize it was in, you give up the point immediately. It doesn't matter if you returned it. As soon as you called it out, the point was over. If you were wrong and admit it, you lose the point.
Don't let that stop you from correcting your bad out calls. I've had to do this a few times.
Not exactly correct ... the old rule used to be that if you corrected your call you replayed the point unless the next ball you hit was a weak sitter
. If you had hit a weak sitter
then you were to award the point to the opponent. I think the rule change cleared up that grey area.
