Tied For Second Place 
In the event that two teams are tied for the second place, the following criteria determines which team qualifies for the finals: 
Head-to-head results; 
Largest winning margin, by games, in any single match; and • Coin toss. 
Match Format 
Each match consists of 5 sets: 
Men’s Singles; 
Women’s Singles; 
Men’s Doubles; 
Mixed Doubles; and • Legends’ Singles. 
The home team decides the order of play of the 5 sets. A Coin Toss determines who picks the order of play in matches where 2 neutral teams are competing. 
Substitutions  
Each team is allowed one substitution per set 
During a set, a doubles player can be substituted by another doubles player, singles player or a Legends player 
During a set, a Singles player can be substituted by another singles player or a doubles player  
During a set, a legends player can be substituted by another legends player only 
In case a player is injured and there is no available substitution, the team loses the set with the Winning team receiving a total 6 points for that set 
Match Scoring 
Each set is played in a no-ad scoring format. 
Each set is first-to-six-games with a Shoot Out at 5-5. 
Shoot-Out: 
o If in any set, the score is tied at 5-5, a 13-point tiebreaker is played to determine the winner. 
o The first team to win 7 points, the 6-6 final point wins the Shoot Out and hence the set. A 2-point difference is not required. 
o It is NOT time bound (unlike Season 1). 
Each game (and shoot-out) won by a team counts as One point in the team scoring total 
The team that wins the most games and hence points, at the end of the five sets, wins the match. 
Super Shoot Out: 
o If the two teams are tied at the end of the five (5) sets, a super shoot-out is played in a Men’s singles format to determine the winner of the match.  
o It is played as a 19-point super tiebreaker. The first team to win 10 points, the 9-9 final point wins the Super Shoot Out and hence the match. A 2-point difference is not required. 
o It is NOT time bound (unlike Season 1). 
o It counts as one point in the overall match score. 
Last Set Importance 
The final set of each match is played until the team with the highest overall score wins the final game. However, if the second placed team wins the fifth set and is still behind in the total number of games won, the set continues until that teams wins enough games to tie the overall games score, or the leading team wins one more game. If the overall game score gets tied, then a Super Shoot Out is played. 
Coca-Cola Power Point 
A receiving player can call the Coca-Cola Power Point (formerly Happiness Power point) to indicate that the next point counts as double. 
Each team can call a Coca-Cola Power-Point maximum once per set.  
Time-Out 
• Each team can call for a Coach’s Time-Out (at any time) once in each set. • Each Time-Out lasts for 60 seconds only. 
Shot Clock 
The Shot Clock keeps track of time as follows: 
20 seconds between Service points; 
45 seconds during changeovers 
3 minutes during breaks between sets; 
Any team that runs out the Shot Clock loses a point. 
Change Over 
• Players change ends for the first time after 3 games and then after every 2 games. • A 45-second Shot Clock monitors the changeover.
