Yes; the ball can hit anywhere in the area below the wrist of your paddle-hand. Also, sometime in 2011, they changed the rules to allow the ball to hit that area TWICE, if it was accidental -- that is, as long as it's the same continuous stroke of the paddle -- and, the ball can never hit any place other than that area. For example, if the ball deflects off your wrist AND THEN nicks/scrapes part of a finger, that's OK -- you just keep playing the point. However, if the ball strikes any area above your wrist (of your paddle-hand), then you lose that point (i.e. volley) -- and game then resumes as normal with the next serve for whoever is serving. Another note on this: If you suspect your opponent of hitting the ball twice outside the area mentioned above, then you should immediately call a "let" and clarify what you saw and declare the point is yours. However, if your opponent says it didn't happen that way, then you MUST call for a "referee" IF you do not accept the opponents' explanation of where/what the ball struck -- HOWEVER, usually you would ACCEPT your opponents' explanation, because table-tennis is a game among honorable players.

You should return a back spin with top spin, and a top spin with back spin. If you try to combat the other person's backspin with backspin of your own, then you run the risk of not putting enough backspin on the ball, and therefore the shot may go long. Much better to continue the spin which your opponent has put on the ball, and make his/her back spin work for you. Your opponent's backspin is essentially your topspin, so your opponent is already helping you out. You also need to understand that, when your opponent puts backspin on the ball, the ball will not go very far after it bounces on your side of the table. Thus, you need to move forward a bit to get to it. Also, you should usually wait until the opponent's shot bounces up to its highest point before hitting the ball back to him/her. This might mean backing up and waiting for the ball to reach that point. You want to hit it when his/her shot is hovering in the air, not when it just hit the table. This will maximize your ability to control the return. Only advanced players should combat topspin with topspin, or backspin with backspin. This is much more difficult and requires a great deal of skill.
