1. Choosing the discipline

There are three Nohejbal disciplines:

  • Single: one player, two touches, one bounce in all categories, court dimensions 9 m × 12.8 m.
  • Double: two players, three touches (but not two consecutive touches by the same player), one bounce allowed for men and two bounces for women and juniors, court dimensions 9 m × 12.8 m.
  • Triple: three players, three touches (but not two consecutive touches by the same player), one bounce allowed for men and two for women and juniors, court dimensions 9 m × 18 m.

 

2. General rule
The players score a point hitting the ball with any part of their body except for the hands and making it bounce in the opponent’s area in a way that makes it difficult or impossible for the other team to return it over the net. The players may not touch the net during open play, otherwise it is a point for the opponent.

 

3. Winning
In all the disciplines, a set finishes with 11th point with a two-point difference, maximum score is 15:14. To win a match, the team has to win 2 sets.
