A player shall not put into play or hit the ball over the net if there is a obvious service fault. To do so constitutes rudeness and may even be a form of gamesmanship.
When the server’s second service motion is interrupted by a ball coming onto the court, the server is entitled to two serves.
A medical timeout shall begin when a player states the need for one. A maximum of three minutes is allowed for a medical timeout. His/her opponent(s) may begin timing the three minutes after which play must resume immediately or the match must be retired. A player may not take more than one medical timeout for the same condition.
If you feel a court is unsafe, you do not have to play on it. It only takes one player to deem a court unplayable. Agreement of all parties is not required.
This is not a fully equipped court and therefore no one is forced to play on it. If you decide to play, no grievance may be filed.
If no one has a measure, the court is deemed playable. The correct height is 36 inches.
Yes on both sides of your court. You may not call a let on adjoining courts even if your ball rolls onto another court. Exception: You may not call a let if the ball falls out of your own pocket or your partner’s pocket.
