6.10 Screening

Definition

12.5 SCREENING

12.5.1 The players of the serving team must not prevent their opponent, through individual or collective screening, from seeing the server and the flight path of the ball.

12.5.2 A player or a group of players of the serving team make(s) a screen by waving arms, jumping or moving sideways during the execution of the service, or by standing grouped to hide the server and the flight path of the ball.


"from seeing the server and the flight path of the ball"

The wording of this rule makes it clear that a team must restrict the view of the person serving AND at the flight path of the ball. If one or more players are moving or irritating the opponent by waving the arms or jumping at the moment of the service hit, a screen should be called.
