START OF GAME:
Rock/Paper/Scissors will be played between the two captains to determine serve or side; best of one wins and picks either serve or side. Teams will rotate sides and serve after the completion of each game.
All games are rally scoring. Each match will consist of 2 games to 21 points and if needed, a 3rd game to 15 points. Win by 2 points or first to 23. No cap for 3rd game. The team that wins two games shall be declared the winner.
Because of wind, sun, and the ground, we switch sides of the net every 7 points. (Example: Score is 4-3, switch. Score is 15-13, switch) On games to o15, switch every 5 points.
Teams do not need to wear uniforms. You can play in shoes with no cleats or barefoot.
Each team is allowed one (one-minute) time-out per game. No carryovers.
Teams must switch sides after either team reaches 11 points. Teams stay after that until game is over.
On the serve, the ball cannot touch the net. If the ball touches the net, it is considered a miss serve.
PLAYER AT THE NET:
A player can break the plane on a spike and a block, as long as you do not interfere with the opponent’s attempt of a returning shot. You can only interfere if part of the ball is directly over the net or if the opponent has no play on the ball.
FAULTS AT THE NET:
Contact with the net is a fault, even when a player’s momentum causes them to contact the net (excessive net faults will result in that player suspended from the game).
A player may go completely under the net as long as they neither touch the net or interfere with the play.
All teams will make playoffs and seeded accordingly. Best of 3 (21,21,15) no cap. 1st place teams will win a t-shirt and bragging rights!
