Guidelines for calls: line calls should be made by team receiving the ball, and should only be called out if the ball is clearly seen as out. If a player is unsure of the call, they should assume the ball was in, and continue playing. If the hitting team sees a ball out, they can also call it out on themselves. Either team can make calls on service faults or non-volley zone faults, and the hitting team is expected to call faults on themselves or their partner.
We appreciate your help to make this event a fun experience. If there are any problems, players involved may be disqualified from participating in future Around the Post Shootouts events.
