Match

Games are played outdoors at the MTL Beach  on five courts ( 9 x 18m). Net height: 2m 35cm

If there is a lot of wind or too much sun, the teams can change sides at any multiple of 7 points. The captains must agree at the start of the match.

Matches are 3 sets – 2 sets of 15 points and a 3rd set of 11 points if needed.

For all matches, points will be awarded as follows:

Won = 3 points

Lost = 1 point

No-show = 0 points

 

Formula and classification: The classification is established according to the number of victories and in the event of a tie the number of sets won will be used. If the tie persists, the ratio of points won/points lost will decide between the teams.

Arbitration

There is no referee for the matches, so it will be self-refereeing. When in doubt, assume the fault or ask the person in charge on site to enlighten you.

All players are expected to show respect and honesty in helping us keep the spirit of the tournament friendly and cheerful.

Mixed teams

Each team must have a woman and a man on the courts at all times. Mixed 4 X 4 – all players can attack the net. (not a hard rule but strongly encouraged)

Any player must first be registered on the team registration form.

Security

  • It is forbidden to cross the ball over the net into touch.
  • No contact with the net is allowed.
  • When the blocker touches the ball, that contact counts as a contact. There are therefore 2 contacts left to counter-attack. The same player can play the ball again, in this case there would be only one touch left to get the ball across.

Players rotate after each point. Every four points, a new player enters the field.
