    2. Teams must rotate with every side out, including the first one.
    3. Teams are allowed 1 time-out per game.
    4. To rotate in extra players, a team must always rotate into the same position on the court before or after the serve when the ball is dead.

    6. During play, only the team captain is allowed to ask for an interruption of a call or rule from the ref.  Any vulgar language directed at the ref will not be tolerated and will result in the player being ejected from the game, match or league with no refund of entry fee.
