  • The serve can not hit the side fence, only the glass wall (after bouncing).

  • The ball can only bounce once on the ground, on each side.

  • The ball must first bounce on the ground before hitting the wall.

  • It is allowed to hit the ball in the wall on the way to the opponent’s half, or let the ball hit the wall on its own half before you hit it back over the net.

  • When the ball bounces twice on the opponent’s half, your team gets the point.

  • The opponent is allowed to run off the field to get the ball during the game, if the ball bounces off.
