SUCCESSIVE CONTACT WITH THE BALL BY A PLAYER: A player shall not make successive contacts with the ball except when playing a hard driven spiked ball, provided there is no finger action used during the effort and the ball is not held or thrown. Successive contact with the spiked ball shall count as one attempt to play the ball. A hard driven spike can be played off the wall(s).
MISHANDLED OR HELD BALL: A ball coming to rest momentarily in the hands, arms or any other area above the player's waist, or against the wall(s), shall be considered as having been held. The ball must be hit in such a manner that it rebounds cleanly after contact with a player. Scooping, lifting, pushing or carrying the ball with one or two hands or arms either underhand or overhand, shall be considered to be a form of holding and is a fault, and a side-out or loss of serve will be called.
TEAM OR PLAYER ASSISTANCE: Teammates shall not hold or assist one another while making a play. It shall be legal for a player to hold a teammate not making a play on the ball in order to prevent a fault.

CLIMBING THE WALL: No player shall climb the wall(s) to gain a height advantage while making a play on the ball.
MULTIPLE CONTACTS WITH THE BALL DURING A BLOCK: Multiple contact with the ball between players participating in a block is legal. A player who participates in a block may contact the ball on the next play, since blocking is not considered one of the three (3) hits allowed a team.
DEFLECTION THE BALL OFF THE BACK WALL: If a player contacts the ball in such manner that the ball deflects off the back wall on his side of the court and goes over the net, the ball shall be considered good.
ATTACK SPIKING THE BALL: Any player may spike the ball in 2 or 3 person team play. A player may not attack spike a ball on the opposite side of the net. If the ball is hit above the spiker's side of the net and then the follow-through causes the spiker's hand and arm to cross the net without contacting an opponent, such action does not constitute a fault.
THE BALL SPINNING INTO THE OPPONENT’S COURT AND RETURNING: A ball that spins off the net into an opponent’s court and subsequently returns to the team originally in possession of the ball shall be good, provided it occurred on the first or second contact by the team. If the ball spins off the net on the third hit allowed a team, a side-out will be called. Any team member other than the last player to hit the ball can participate in the second or third hit after a ball that is spinning, enters an opponent's court and returns.
DINKING: A player may dink the ball in any form except with an open hand with finger control of the ball.
