About the event
The Sports Carnival Committee reserves the right to modify or cancel the sport if insufficient nominations are received.
The winner will receive 15,000 points and the runner-up 9,000 points.
Players must have footwear appropriate for the sport.
Team captains are to report game results to coordinator asap after games are complete.
The volleyball competition will be conducted under the rules set down by the Australian Volleyball Federation, except where modified by the following:
The competition will consist of a mixed teams event with six players on the court at any one time. Teams will be randomly drawn into pools. Teams must have a minimum of two females on the court at any one time.
Each match will be the best of three sets. The first two sets will be first to eighteen points and capped at eighteen. The third set (if required) will be to fifteen and uncapped (two point advantage at fourteen all).
Points are awarded per rally (that is, you don’t have to serve to win the point). Playing time is limited to thirty minutes per game. Any set which is incomplete at the end of the prescribed time limit shall be counted as a completed set provided one team has reached at least eight points and holds a lead of at least two points. Matches will be decided on the basis of completed sets.
The competition shall be played on a round robin basis with points being awarded as follows:
> win – 3 points
> draw – 1 point
> loss – 0 points
In the event of a forfeit the team that is available to play shall be awarded the winning points. For the purposes of ‘for and against’ the score line will be eighteen-nil (18-0). Each set is forfeited after five minutes therefore after ten minutes the game is forfeited.
The top teams in each pool at the end of the round robin will contest semi-finals with the winners contesting the final. In the event of two or more teams finishing with the same number of points, their positions will be determined on a sets for and against basis (sets won minus sets lost), using the results from the preliminary round. If still tied, positions will be based on points for and against. The grand final will be best of three sets as above but with no time limit.
Gold and silver medals will be presented after the finals to the teams competing.
