  1. Each team will consist of 4 players and maximum of 2 substitutes (optional). Teams can substitute only when it is their turn to serve or when it is an emergency. You can substitute 2 times regardless of the points.
  2. Teams will be divided into groups. Knockout round starts after each team has played the teams in their group.
  3. Players are expected to be at the court at least 15 minutes prior to the game. If the players fail to show up the match will be canceled and the opponent will be declared a winner.
  4. A team can take one time-out of 30 seconds each during a set (unless there is an emergency), maximum of 3 timeouts in one match.
  5. Service (under the arm is fine) is within five seconds after the referee whistles and is done from the service zone, without crossing the end line but can serve from anywhere behind the line.
  6. Jump/Running serve and Jump catch is allowed, but Jumping and Throwing during the rally is not allowed (Feet shouldn’t off the ground). Walking or running more than 1 step with the ball before throwing is not allowed.
  7. The service ball must not touch the net. Players cannot touch the net during the play. Rally ball can touch the net (but cannot touch the antenna) and reach the other side.

  9. There will be a 2 feet line marked from the center line. The ball falling in that box/line is foul. The ball must cross the 2 feet line when throwing. Player’s foot touching/crossing the 2 feet line (while catching the ball) is ok; however, players should not stand or step into 2 feet area and throw.
