GAME FORMAT: Each hour long match will consists of 3 games. All 3 games are played regardless if one team wins the first 2.
At minimum, 4 players are required to play. If a team does not possess the needed amount of players to start, the opposing team will receive a win for the first game of the match. If the team does not possess enough players by the beginning of the second game, a forfeit will be assessed. Teams may continue to finish out the games but the opposing team will still receive the match win.
GHOST PLAYERS: Teams that are short players must designate a spot in their serving rotation for a “ghost player.” The space(s) is where the other player would play in the rotation if he/she were present. When the “ghost player” rotates to the serving position, the team will automatically lose their serve. If a team is 2 players short, they would play with two “ghost players.” Players arriving late may automatically take over the “ghost player’s” position at any time during the progress of the game.

Any team that loses all 3 games will lose 1 point. Teams will be penalized 1 point for each game forfeited (up to 3 for a match) and 1 point for missing assigned umping/judging duties.
