Rules for timed lightning tournament

Added by Jim Stroud



Doubles Round Robin with 2 rounds, games timed at 15 minutes. Teams continue to play until the timer goes off, not when they reach a certain score.

The games will be timed at 15 minutes with a two to three minute rest period between games. A timer will be used that has a loud audible sound so everyone knows when the game is over. When the alarm goes off, there are only 3 reasons you will continue to play: (1) The server is in the middle of his serving motion when the buzzer goes off. (2) The score is tied when the buzzer goes off. (3) The buzzer goes off in the middle of a point.
