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.
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.
