If any of you still need to pair-up with a doubles partner, please drop by on

Saturday during the check-in time and we will do our best to pair you up

with others who are also looking for a doubles partner.

 

Participants, please be aware that the following rules for doubles play will be

in effect and enforced.   Note that these rules are different than those

in effect for larger groups of players and require some adjustments in play.

 

No open hand use on serve receive.
Open hand receive can only be used for hard driven hits - not on freeballs or roll shots.
A block does not count as one of the teams three contacts.
If you use your hands to pass a ball over the net you must be facing the direction the ball goes, you can not face the net and set the ball at an angle.
If you accidentally hand set the ball and it goes over the net, it is the other teams point and ball.
No open hand tips on third ball.

Prizes awarded 1st and 2nd place teams in playoff round.

 

All proceeds will benefit the Great Pasadena Volleyball Meetup Group (volleyball equipment).

 

Notes:

 

1. Could I have folks who have their own V-ball nets volunteer their nets for the

doubles tournament.  Would be greatly appreciated.

 

2. We would also appreciate if folks could bring coolers with ice.
