Policy & basic game rules
It is most common to play doubles (four people on the field).
Points start with a serve. It is not allowed to serve above hip height. First points start from the right part of the pitch (as in tennis) and the server must land in the diagonal server pane. You have two servers. The napkin cannot hit the side fence, only the glass wall (after bounce).
It is allowed to use the walls. It is allowed to hit the ball in the wall on the way to the opponent's half or let the ball hit the wall on its own half before turning the ball over the net. The point is lost when the ball bounces twice on one side.
The ball cannot hit the wall directly, it must first bounce in the ground.
