Official Luau Grass Rules

Rules for the Luau have been settled upon after careful consideration and a look at what other big tournaments in the area use for their rules.


1.        No cleats or spikes are permitted. Players are allowed to play in gym shoes or barefoot.

2.        For 3's, no in set subbing (except for injury). For 4's & 6's, player can sub in within sets. 2 men/2 women for Coed 4's. 3 men/3 women for Coed 6's.

3.        Players ARE allowed to set the serve on any first ball over. We play the indoor rule where any first contact over the net can be doubled.

4.        Players are responsible for calling their own ball handling errors. No more than 1 & 1/2 rotations at the open & AA levels and 2 1/2 rotations at the rest of the levels

5.        No open hand tips allowed for 3's & 4's. Open hand tips allowed for 6's.

6.        No side sets over. You must set the ball over the net either straight forward or straight backwards (the way your shoulders are facing) for 3's & 4's. Side sets allowed for 6's.

7.        Let serves DO NOT COUNT. If the serve hits the net, the ball is dead with a point going to the other team.

8.        A block does not count as a touch (like playing indoor)

9.        All pool play matches will consist of TWO games to 21 (cap at 23). Master's will play 1 game to 30 (cap at 32).

10.     The length of playoff matches will be determined by the number of teams in your tournament.

11.     Only the serving order must rotate. Players are otherwise free to lineup wherever they want on the court. 

     12.     ***NEW*** For Coed 4’s, all players are live and are considered front row players.

Played many different sports with them from soccer, dodgeball, volleyball, bowling, flag football, and some of their social events. Great opportunity to play many sports at various levels. It is a friendly group that keeps you coming back to win the elusive champions fleece.

Previously just played in one of their softball leagues on Wednesday nights and I must say I had a great experience. League was organized, umpires were professional, and the staff answered all questions I needed and made team registration easy. I highly recommend their leagues!

I’ve been participating in Players volleyball tournaments for close to 6 years now and they never disappoint. They have so many leagues and tournament dates for multiple sports that I can’t wait for them to post dates so I can fill up my calendar! Lots of friendly and helpful staff and their events are a great setting to meet new people!
