CODE OF ETHICS
 

  • In case of doubt on a line call, your opponent wins the point.
     

  • You are responsible for all calls on your side of the net.
     

  • The only time you call a ball on the opposite side of the net is when your opponent requests help or you clearly see that the ball was out.
     

  • If a ball cannot be called out, it is good. Not seeing where the ball bounces is no excuse for a LET – your opponent wins the point.
     

  • In doubles – if your partner calls a ball out and you saw it as good, you should tell your partner quietly and let him over rule himself.
    Note: If you develop a reputation as a cheater, no one will enjoy playing with you.

NO ONE LIKES A CHEATER!

 

  • Do not foot fault.
     

  • A ball from your court going onto an adjoining court, or a ball from an adjoining court coming onto your court while play is in progress, can provide the bases for a LET. A “LET” should be called as soon as the stray ball is seen. The point is then played over. Do not wait to call a let after you have lost the point.
     

  • Do not use the quick serve – give your opponent a chance to get set.
     

  • THE SERVER SHOULD CALL OUT THE SCORE BEFORE EACH POINT.
     

  • In warming-up prior to a match, hit the ball easily at first so it will be returned – both parties involved will benefit.
