Fun Is Number One
Please join us at Funk Beach for a day full of trademark Funkalicious good vibrations and volley camaraderie; maybe catch a buzz and win a prize, too.
We relax the rules - here's a breakdown of them:
Fun Kahuna level tourney rules
- Teams can be 4, 5 or 6 players
- Teams of 4 or 5 require at least 1 female player
- Teams of 6 require 2 female players
For a chill, fun vibe - this is not a spiking event
This is a Fun Kahuna gig
PLEASE NO SPIKING - practice your ball placement and ball control skills
We relax the ball handling rules
- We do not call hand sets, defense or passing for double contacts (spinny stuff)
- Open hand serve receives are not called
- We do not call reasonable lifts/carries
- We do not call pushes/throws that go UP
Here's what we do call
- No throwing/pushing the ball DOWN for a point
- No attacking the serve (spiking/blocking the serve back)
- 3 ball touches per side play
- No net contact at all.
Touching, brushing, backing into the net = stop play and point for the opponent.
- No contact with opponents under the net - at all.
*We need players to control their bodies, to keep sand volleyball a non contact sport and protect everyone's safety.
Rotation of team players on the serve is just fine, but not required.
Each player on the team must take a turn serving, in order and throughout the game.
Please do call the score out or shout "SERVICE!" before each serve, so that your opponent realizes the serve is coming.
