Rules 4.1. and 4.1.2 have been interchanged which is an editorial change only. The change in Rules 7.2.1. and 7.2.2. is a further clarification of scoring and brings our Rules in accordance with the FIVB rules. A change was made for Doubles and Triples Competition only in Rules 13.1.3 and 18.4.1 that now states that blocking DOES constitute a team contact, and any player may make the second contact of the ball after the block. This change brings our rules into accord with the FIVB and other sanctioning groups. The Rule for Four-Player and Six-Player Competition DID NOT change and the block does NOT constitute a team contact. A clarification should be pointed out for all Beach Volleyball competition, that Rules 126.96.36.199 and 13.2.1 allow for simultaneous contact by teammates which is counted as one contact and any player may make the second contact. Rule 13.2.3 now allows a joust to be legal for all types of competition including Four-Player and Six-Player competition. Rule 13.4.1 now allows the player in Six-Player competition to touch the ball with any part of the body. Rule 188.8.131.52 now allows a "beach dig" to be allowed during the defensive play of a hard-driven ball in Four-Player and Six-Player competition. The change in Rule 13.4.5 is an attempt to take intent out of the Rule and judge legality only if there is sufficient wind to be a factor in the play. For example, if the wind is blowing into the team's court and a legal set is sent over the net, then that would be judged a fault. Conversely, if the wind is blowing in the same direction and the other team's set crosses over the net, it would not be judged a fault. Rule 16.6 allows for one service attempt and it has been adopted by all other governing bodies and makes our Rules in accordance with those bodies. The change in Rule 21.1.2 is to clarify the handling of a situation of an injured player. It was reworded to amplify and to eliminate confusion.
