  • Please avoid criticizing your partner or players on the opposing team.
  • Please control your anger. This applies to anger towards yourself and towards others.
  • If you hit a ball into the next court, call "BALL" loudly so the other team will stop play to prevent injuries.

  • Keep it fun for everyone!
