Below are listed the major rule differences for the outdoor game…
• Court size is 8m x 8m on each side (approx. 26’ x 26’)
• Any net touch during play is a violation
• Players can cross under the net as long as they don’t interfere with play
• Players must rotate serving order, but do not need to rotate position on the court
• The serve CANNOT be passed with a setting motion.
• If a serve is passed overhead, the hands must be touching during the play on the ball
• When hand setting the ball, no double contact is allowed
• While the spin is not a perfect indicator of a double contact, we will use spin to simplify the calling of illegal sets.
• Excessive spin when hand setting will indicate an illegal set
• Setting the ball over the net is allowed, but only if the ball travels directly forward or backward of the setter. (no side setting over the net)
• This applies even if it is unintentional (i.e. the wind blows the ball over the net)
• “Tipping” the ball is illegal when done with the fingers.
• Teams switch sides on multiples of either 10 or 7
• If the game is played to 21 points, the teams will switch any time the score adds up to multiples of 7
• If the game is played to 20, 25, or 30, the teams will switch any time the score adds up to multiples of 10.
