WHAT ARE SOME RULE REMINDERS?

  1. If you step into another court, even after contacting the ball, it is out.

  2. When serving, one foot must be touching the sport court at the start of the motion to serve. When serving from the west side of courts 1, 2, and 3 to compensate for a shorter serve area, one foot may go into the court provided a portion of the foot remains behind the line.

  3. Anytime a player's foot completely crosses the center line into the opponent's court it is a fault, regardless of opponent's position.

  4. At the start of the game, the first time the receiving team wins the point they must rotate.
