 Our Grass format is a very unique, complex format. Almost twice as many games are played in the same amount of time as an Old School Doubles tournament. With  pool play and managing win/loss/points data for each team, the day is as long as it is equally enjoyable for everyone.  The first 3 below, are the "big ones", the rest are identical to Old School Doubles rules.

  • Rally Scoring.

  • Court is a "big" court, not a short court.

  • No Net serves. If your serve hits the net to any degree, you lose serve and it goes to your opponent.

  • A block does not count as a hit.

  • At no time can a player touch the net. Hair and clothing is permissible to touch the net. Hats and shoes are not allowed to touch the net. If you touch the net after the ball is down and it's part of your follow-through, it's a net violation.

  • You can not open hands pass a serve.

  • You can open hands pass an offensive driven ball only if the ball is hit on a continuous downward path (sometimes called "hard driven") from point of contact from the offensive player; your pass MUST come out clean (no double contact). If the offensive driven ball arcs at all and you use your open hands to pass it, its a violation.

  • If you open hands set over the net, 1) it must be square to your shoulders, and 2) it can not make more than 1 rotation. If BOTH of these things do not happen, its a violation. If only one of these things happen, its a violation.

 

If there are too few teams to fill a division, teams will be combined with another division for pool play.
