USEFUL INFORMATION


IMPORTANT (updated on March 10th, 23:00)

 

 IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE VIDEO CHALLENGE PROCEDURES:

 

-        At the time of the Challenge request, you MUST use the signal corresponding to the nature of the suspected fault you are challenging.

 

-        For actions that finish the rally, you have a maximum of 5 seconds to make the Challenge request.

 

-        Challenges take precedence over all other match actions e.g. Time out requests, court switches, etc. Accordingly, NO Challenge requests will be accepted after you switch the court. 

 

NOTE that point 8 of the Video Challenge procedures has been adjusted as follows:

 

Teams that interrupt the rally due to a Challenge request that is not part of the challenging options (listed in point 4 in the regulations) will lose the rally automatically and one of their challenges for that set. Additionally, they may be sanctioned for delay, as appropriate.
