Tijuana, Mexico, October 6, 2013 – Two new rules, which were planned to be trialled at the FIVB Volleyball Women’s U23 World Championship Open tournament currently being held in Mexico, will now not be tested following the decision of the Control Committee during the tournament’s General Technical Meeting on Friday.
The two new rules were a) to play 21 points per set (apart from the fifth set, which was to remain until 15) and b) to limit the time between serves to 15 seconds. The tournament will now be conducted under the original FIVB Rules of the Game.
The FIVB Volleyball Women’s U23 World Championship Open Control Committee made the decision after receiving feedback from numerous parties.
The FIVB Volleyball Women’s U23 World Championship Open started in Tijuana and Mexicali on Saturday and runs until October 12.
The new rules will be tested during the FIVB Volleyball Men’s U23 World Championship Open which starts on Sunday in Uberlandia, Brazil and runs until October 13.
