A ball hit into the net may be retrieved and played over the net within the team's limit of three hits. If the ball is only partly across the net, and the opponent hits it, it is good. Touching the net is not allowed by players, unless the ball is driven into the net and the net hits the player.

 

Blockers can reach over the net to block, providing the other team has made its third contact of the ball. The opponent cannot block the set.

  • No climbing or using the walls or players assisting each other to gain height at the net.

  • A ball can hit the back wall and go over the net directly (when being played by your side), but if two walls are touched, another player must touch it before going over the net.

  • If a ball spins across to the opponent’s side and back to yours on the 1st or 2nd hit, you can play your 2nd or 3rd hit. If it is on the 3rd hit that it spins back, loss of point or side out occurs.
