Double Hit?
 
Another odd play I saw yesterday: first contact of a ball is a pancake that comes back and bounces off the player's head. This was one attempt to play the ball so obviously it is not illegal. The ball however then pops into the air (about 5 feet) and comes back down contacting the same player who is still sprawled on the floor. Again, the player made no other "attempt" at the ball and was laying on the floor from the initial attempt. Do we now have a double hit or nothing?

Double hit. Don't read too much into this. They are separate actions of contacting the ball, and would not be considered the same attempt.

Agree with Felix...double hit. Two distinct and separate plays on the ball (even though the ball played her, not the other way around).
