RULES

 

Standard outdoor AVP rules apply for all tournaments


Please note the following highlights: 

  • A Net is a Net – If you contact any portion of the net during play, it is a fault.

  • Antennae – The standards (poles) are the antennae. If the ball touches or passes over the poles, it is out.

  • Block counts as a Touch 

  • Court Boundary – Entering any adjacent court that is scheduled for competition during play is a fault.

  • Finger Action Over Net – No finger action over the net, including redirecting on a block and set overs.

  • No open-hand serve receive 

  • Hard Driven Ball – Finger action (beach dig) allowed for first contact on a hard-driven ball. Hard-driven is defined as a ball you don’t have time to think about.

  • No center line violations – If a player goes under the net during play, it is not a fault, unless it interferes with the other team’s ability to play the ball.

Reverse CoEd: 

  • Women's net height will be used for all games (7ft 4in).

  • Men can only swing/ contact the ball for an attack above the height of the net from behind the 10ft line, which will be drawn on the ground.
