Let’s Talk Rules – Rule 9: Playing the Ball

Webinar series Let’s Talk Rules returns in the new year to discuss Rule 9 – Playing the Ball.

Team hits, characteristics of the hit and faults in playing the ball will all be covered in the next session, which will take place at 7.15pm on Wednesday, 6th January.

Similar to previous talks, it will be led by Nick Heckford, Officials Working Group Lead, and is open for anyone who wants to improve their understanding of the indoor game's rules to attend – whether they’re a player, coach, official or spectator.

Attendees will once more have the opportunity to ask questions and there will be a greater emphasis on interaction throughout this next session.

This episode of Let’s Talk Rules follows on from presentations that have covered service (Rule 12) and the structure of play (Rule 7).

When is the next session?

The next 'Let's Talk Rules!' webinar will be held on Wednesday, 6th January at 7.15pm, focussing on Rule 9: Playing the Ball.

If you're unable to attend, a recording will once more be made available afterwards on Volleyball England's YouTube channel.
