Each team will be allowed one timeout per game (one minute).
All other IFP/USAPA Rules will be in effect.
There will not be referees during the matches. You will referee your own matches. We expect good sportsmanship at all times in this area.
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 Royal Pickleball Shootouts events.
