If a player struggles to serve the ball through the net, play 2v2 and introduce the rule where the player may serve by passing directly to a teammate – instead of throwing the ball through the net. The serve counts as the first touch, and the three touch rule begins immediately (where up to three touches are permitted before throwing the ball through the net).

Tip 1: The serve-by-passing rule, introduced to help someone struggling to serve the ball directly through the net, may be used as necessary to enable gameplay.
Tip 2: The serve-by-passing rule is designed for players who lack the strength to throw the ball through the net on serve. It is not intended for those who simply want to make it easier to throw the ball through the boxes.
