  4. He over exaggerated what can not be done in the kitchen. As long as you don't volley in there or you stop your momentum after a volley from taking you in there you are good.
    9.E. A player may enter the non-volley zone at any time except when that player is volleying the ball.

    9.F. A player may enter the non-volley zone before or after returning any ball that bounces.

    9.G. A player may stay inside the non-volley zone to return a ball that has bounced. There is no violation if a player does not exit the non-volley zone after hitting a ball that bounces.

    9.H. There is no violation if a player returns the ball while his or her partner is standing in the non-volley zone.
