a clear net-foul


Senior Member
This time Curt managed to handle Eric’s serve, but the return was a bunny and Eric was vulturing the net, almost hanging over it. His return –a clear net-foul –hit Curt in the belt-buckle. ‘Quit it, dude!’ Curt shouted. ‘I might want to have kids someday!’

Context: Eric and Curt are high school seniors and playing tennis.

a clear net-foul means it was foul with the ball touching the net, right?

Thank you.
