OFFICIAL BALL:

Penn is the Official Ball of USA Racquetball and the ProPenn Green ball will be used in all matches.

 

MIXED DOUBLES RULES:

Each receiving team member must clearly take a position on opposite sides of the back court within 10 seconds of the score being called. Failure to do so is delay of game.

The boy must serve to the boy and the girl must serve to the girl. Any serve that is judged by the referee to be served to the incorrect player is a fault serve (same as a short serve).

Definition of legal serve: The serve must bounce in the middle or in the correct side of the court and must remain either in the middle or in the correct side of the court for the second bounce if it were to occur.

Only the boy may return the boy’s serve; only the girl may return the girl’s serve. Returning serve out of turn is considered an encroachment and results in a point for the serving team.
