- Games are typically played to 11, 15, or 21. In tournament play, the tournament director specifies the winning score.
- Games must be won by two points unless otherwise agreed upon or specified.
- The rally ends and a point is a point is awarded when:
- The ball contacts the ground or otherwise isn't returned onto the net within three touches.
- The ball is hit directly into the rim at any time, including on a serve.
- The ball bounces and falls back onto the net or rim.
- The ball clearly rolls across the net.
- If the receiving team wins the point, the next designated player serves according to the initial sequence. Otherwise, the server switches places with his/her partner and serves to the other receiving team member.
- The receiving team sets their position first. The server stands 180 degrees across the designated receiver--the only player allowed to field the serve.
- Serves may be struck with any amount of force; short serves are allowed.
- If a server serves two faults, the receiving team wins the point. Violation of ANY of the following rules is a fault:
- The server must toss the ball upward at least two inches.
- If the server tosses the ball, he/she must hit it. Dropping, catching, or swinging at and missing a toss all count as a fault.
- Touches must alternate between teammates. Consecutive touches by one player result in a loss of a point.
- The ball must be contacted cleanly, not caught, lifted, or thrown. Players may not hit the ball with two hands, even if placed together "volleyball style".
- Players may use any individual part of their body to hit the ball.
- After the serve, any unusual bounce (i.e. pocket) that does not contact the rim is legal and playable.
- A shot which lands on the net, rolls into the rim and then off the net (i.e. roll-up) is played as a pocket, not a direct rim hit.
- If teams cannot determine the legality of a hit, replay the point.
