Getting hit with ball

If you get hit with the ball (body shot) and you are behind the end line or off to the side of side court, is it a point to the other team?

Or do you have to be standing between the court lines and then if you get hit with the ball, does it only count for a point for the other team.

Doesn't matter where you are standing...if it hits you in the air without bouncing it is your loss of point. Additionally if a serve hits you or your partner without bouncing first it is a loss of point.

Thanks for the clarification Steve, seeing that this happened in Wk 1, now we know for future...
