Walleyball

Starting:
  1. A coin toss is used to determine who is to serve the ball, and the court side. The winner of the coin toss may pick the court side OR may serve first. The loser chooses the remaining option.
Serving:
  1. The ball must be served from the back 3 feet of the court.
  2. The ball can be served anywhere along the back wall, with one hand only.
  3. The ball is served in the same manner as in volleyball.
  4. The ball may not hit the ceilin g or back wall on a serve.
  5. You may hit the side wall on a serve – either your wall or your opponent’s wall.
  6. The ball may not hit the net or another team member on a serve.
In/Out of Bounds:
  1. The ball shall be called out-of-bounds whenever it hits the ceiling or back wall on the opponent’s side.
  2. The ball shall be called out-of-bounds whenever it hits two or more walls consecutively on a serve, volley, or block.
  3. The back wall is in play only on the side of the team that is returning the serve or volley, providing that a player on that team touches the ball first.
  4. The ceiling is in bounds only on the side of the team that is returning the serve or volley, providing that a player on that team touches the ball first.
  5. If the ball is hit outside the court area, i.e. into the spectator’s gallery, the ball shall be declared dead and the point replayed. No loss of point or serve will be called if this occurs on the first or second volley. However, if the ball is hit into the spectator’s gallery on a third hit, serve, or volley, a point or side-out will be called. If the ball touches the opponent’s ceiling before leaving the court area, the ball will be called out-of-bounds and a side-out declared (loss of point or serve).
