Starts the week of Sept 11- Nov 1
DIVISIONS WILL DEPEND ON THE NUMBER AND SKILL LEVELS OF TEAMS THAT ENTER.
What is the format? First 7 weeks are round robin style and last week is Playoffs. (You will be seeded based on how well you did in previous weeks)
How many games per week? Depends on how many teams sign up (most of the time 2 games per league night)
How do you determine a winner? On the last week, a playoff bracket will be made based on seeds. The team that wins the championship game will be the winner!
Games are played to 11, win by 2. Each team member gets to serve until they lose the point, with one exception, the team that serves first only gets one serve. The score is a series of 3 numbers; serving team score, receiving team score, and server #1 or #2. For example, the score 7-3-2 means the serving team has 7 points, receiving team has 3 points, and the second server is about to serve.
Must serve underhand from behind the baseline, cross-court, into the service area past the kitchen. Only the serving team can score points.
After the serve, the receiving team must let the ball bounce, then the serving team must let that return bounce before hitting. After that the ball may be volleyed (hit in the air) or off the bounce. A player cannot strike the ball in the kitchen (the area in front of the net) unless the ball bounces in the kitchen first.
