Coed Ghost Player Rule

December 8, 2019, 10:08 pm

The PVA Board has voted to do away with the old exemption rule which allowed a coed team to play with three men and two women only once a season, and instead to adopt the Ghost Player Rule as discussed at the Fall managers meeting. The rule is effective as of the beginning of Winter season and is stated as follows:

Ghost Player Rule

This rule automatically goes into effect for a coed team any time that team chooses, or is forced by circumstance, to play with only five players, and those players consist of three men and two women.

The team playing with three men and two women must leave a space in their lineup where the missing woman should be. If the missing woman would be in the front row, there would be only two front row players for that rotation. When the missing woman would normally serve, the serve goes to the opposing team, like a side-­out but without any point awarded.
