I might agree with you in the spirit of the rule if the player deliberately pinned the ball between his hand and the floor. That could be argued to be at rest in the hand.

Fisting, just don't verbalize the violation in a gym full of moms. Would not have a violation on the OP's play. BB code is On. All times are GMT The time now is The Official Forum - Archive - Top. Hitting the Ball with One's Fist. Page 1 of 3. AremRed Show up, keep up, shut up.
