PLAYING ON SPORT COURT RULE

Each team must play within its own playing area. The area beyond the edge of the sport court is a designated as a no playing zone. Therefore, the last point of contact prior to contact with the ball must be on the sport court. The player must always play the ball on the sport court.

Examples:

  • One foot on the sport court and one foot on the cement while playing the ball = play is whistled dead;
  • Jump in the air off the sport court, play the ball, and land fully off the sport court = play is whistled dead;
  • leave the playing surface and step on a chair and play the ball = play is whistled dead
  • Play the ball on the sport court, momentum of athlete carries them off the court = play continues;  

Any service action must be initiated with at least one foot in contact with the sport court.
These rules are in place to minimize the risk to the athletes.
