There are two players in each team with one or two reserved players. There are only two positions which are followed by the players; the attacker can compete in the whole court area except the throw-in area, designated for the opposing player’s team. The players at the back have to defend from their zone until the ball comes in the contact area. After the ball is being passed, the players can change their position.
The complete game is comprised of 3 sets with 7 goals. The winner is decided by the best of three formats.
A toss is performed to determine which team will start the match at the beginning of the first set. If a goal is made afterwards, then the ball is placed in the throw-in area, and the team with the previous goal gets the chance to strike it first.
The entire court has a length of 10 meters with 5 meters width and height of 3 meters. The goal has a total area of 110 cm x 110 cm.
Fouls and Penalties
If any team is fouled, then immediately the opposing team gets the advantage of the penalty kick. The forward player is then required to kick the ball from the designated half-way line which can only be blocked or defended by the opposing player’s back.
Fouls are considered if the forward player intentionally or non-intentionally crosses of a jump over the opposing player’s throw-in line. The players are also not allowed to back cross the half-way line
No player is allowed to stop the ball and strictly prohibited to use their hands.
No team can keep the ball in their box or designated area for more than seven seconds.
The major foul is considered for the following conditions for which the opposing team players get 3 penalty kicks. These fouls are considered when -
Any player intentionally touches the ball with their hands to stop it or protect the goal
Any player accidentally holds the ball in their hands when it entered inside the goal
The players make any flagrant foul
There is always one designated referee in each match. Eve talks and disrespecting the referee is completely discouraged.
If the referee handed a yellow card to any team, then they automatically receive one goal. But if the referee gives a red card, then they receive an entire winning set.
The referee’s call is designated as the final call, and no player can argue over his/her decision.
