5.6 Improper Request

Sanktionen ir.jpg

Improper Requests are recorded next to the "Sanctions" field. Each team can only receive one improper request. As soon as an improper request occurs, simply cross out the corresponding letter.

The following misconduct will result in an improper request:

  • Request for a time-out or a substitution at the same time or after the authorization of the service (first referee's whistle)
  • Request for a time-out by an unauthorised team member
  • Second request by a team for a substitution without a completed rally in between being played
  • Request for a third time-out or the seventh substitution in a set

Once an improper request has been recorded for a team, any misconduct that would result in an improper request will be penalized (according to the delay scale).
