Interference

  • In order for a player to interfere with an opposing player two things must occur
  • The at fault player must have completely crossed the centerline (below the net) with all or part of his or her body (hands and feet may be on the centerline, all other body parts may not contact the opposing court)
  • The at fault player must contact an opposing player or cause the player to alter his or her attempt at playing the ball
  • If contact is made while neither player has crossed under the net, there is NO fault by either player

Serving

  • You may use 2 service tosses to execute a legal serve, once a legal serve has been made you may have 2 more service tosses to execute another legal serve
  • The serve may NOT contact the net at any time

  • If a driven ball contacts a net or a blocker and the flight of the ball remains downward it may be beach dug

Reverse Co-ed

  • If a male player makes contact with the ball while in front of the 10 foot line he must not contact the ball while any part of the ball is above the plane of the net causing it to go to the opponents playing space

  • A male player is considered in front of the 10 foot line if either of his last two contacts are in front of, or in contact with, the 10 foot line

GARBAGE - You are responsible for whatever you bring in. We will have garbage bags available. We ask that you take your garbage for your tent to the dumpster at the end of the day when you leave.  Please do not leave anything by nets or on the ground for us to pick up. That includes items that are biodegradable such as banana peels, orange peels etc... We need to leave the field as clean as it was before we arrived.

 

  1. FACE MASKS - You will need to wear face masks at anytime unless you are playing, or sitting in your own tent. If you are walking around the field for any reason, please put on a mask until you are back to your tent. You do not need to wear a mask walking to your court to play, we ask that when the game is finished you head straight back to your tent. 
  2. TENTS - You cannot set up tents in rows, each tent needs to be set up at least 6 ft apart. In each tent there can be no more than 5 people in the tent at all times. The people allowed in your tent have to be either someone you came with, your playing partner or came with your playing partner.  If not  they are not allowed in your tent. You are not allowed to visit other peoples tents.
  3. EQUIPMENT - Bring your own balls to warm-up, we will providing game ball for players. Also please bring your own sanitizer, we will have what we can available, but just like everyone else we cannot buy in bulk and it is hard for us to get our hands on it. Sanitize hands before the start of the game, The game ball is clean. 
  4. The goal is to keep our hands clean and the game ball clean.  DO NOT TOUCH your face. If you do you will need to sanitize your hands before play is resumed.  So if the ref calls hands and it wasn't setting - you probably touched your face.  After the play sanitize hands.   Lets do our best not to touch our face.
  5. DO NOT PLAY if you are sick.  Please fill out this health screen survey in the morning.
  6. While temperature isn't the only symptom we will have a temperature check.
