Step 2: Beginning Play

Picture of Beginning Play
Fundamental Rule
Both players may only hit the ball with the protected places of the body. These are the forearms to fists and knees to toes.

Beginning Play
One player stands in the left starting area and the other player stands in the right. They each have 10 points to start. The older player serves first.

The server tosses the ball up and strikes it at the serving wall above the bottom serving line. As soon as the ball is struck, both players are free to move to any position on the court. The server may not touch the ball again until the other player has done so.
