Important 2020 Rule Change
A couple of weeks ago, I sent out a notice about the 2020 USAPA/IFP Official Rulebook being available. This included the 2020 Rule Changes Document.
One of our regular members, Petio Zahariev, went through both documents and noticed a significant rule change. He wanted to make sure you were all aware of point #80, rule 13.D.1.b (page 40 of the 2020 Rule Changes Document):
"Players may call NVZ faults and service foot faults on the opponent's side of the court. If there is any disagreement among players about the called fault, a replay shall occur.
Reason: This rule was changed to allow a replay if the opponents disagree with an NVZ or Service Foot Fault called by their opponents."
Approved Tournament Paddles
Ensure that the paddle(s) you use in tournaments are on the IFP and USAPA Approved Paddle List.
You can key in your paddle name in the USAPA Paddle List search box to double-check that your paddle shows up as approved.
