We want to make this weekend as enjoyable as possible for everyone who participates. That’s why it is important that we set some ground rules.

  • Please respect each other. Treat people the way you want to be treated and don’t behave in offensive ways.
  • Do not bring your own alcohol into the sports hall.
  • We don’t feel like tidying up behind you. Please help us by picking up your own trash and throwing it into the bin. Let us know if the bins are full… (We have more important things to monitor so bins don’t have first priority…)
  • Each team must have at least 5 people in the field, including at least 3 ladies at all times.
  • Except for the final, all matches consist of 16 minutes. Between the matches, there are 4 minutes to change fields.
  • The rally point system will be used in all matches of the tournament. A serve that touches (the top of) the net is correct.
  • The team at the right-hand side of the referee has the first service.
  • Beginning and ending of the match is announced centrally.
  • When you hear the sign to end the set, you can finish the rally you are playing at that moment. Afterwards, the match is finished.
  • In case of a tie, you will play until there is a difference of 2 points, with a maximum of 5 rallies.
  • Each match starts with a 0-0 score and does not end at 25 points because the match will be played on time.
  • If a team is more than 5 minutes late for a match, that team loses the match by 25-0.
  • Except for during the final, time-outs are not allowed.
  • The final consists of normal sets up to 25 points (with the Rally Point System and a 2-point difference) and best of three sets. In the third set, 15 points must be scored.
  • With the exception of the rules above, standard FIVB rules apply.
  • Decisions of the referees cannot be contested. The referee will not allow rude play.
  • In case of doubt not captured by the rules above, the Committee makes a final decision.
  • Every team receives a ball which must be given back at the end of the tournament. You are responsible to hold onto your own ball. When we do not receive your ball back at the end of the tournament, you will have to pay €60 as a compensation for the costs of our ball.

We offer the sports halls as accommodation. We will split all participants up in two large groups to sleep in the big sports hall (230 people) and a smaller one (120 people). We provide a sleeping mat and a chair to place belongings for each person. You may use the showers, toilets and changing rooms of the sports building. We do not provide pillows, blankets or sleeping bags, towels.

Hotel Novotel Brainpark

Alternatively, you may choose to stay in the hotel next to the campus. You will enjoy a 10% discount on the nightly rate. Wi-Fi, fitness and parking are included. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide a discount on the tournament fee should you decide to stay at Novotel.
