- 6. R4 Rule Clarification – League & Tournament PlayTFC Volleyball created the R4 format in 1994 and is played with 2 men and 2 women on the court with a 3 metre line. R4 has been adopted by various volleyball entities throughout the Pacific Northwest and continues to grow in popularity.GRASS: If a team fields 3 players for the Thursday Grass R4 League they ‘must’ play with the Ghost Rule. The Ghost Rule applies to tournament play too. A Reverse Doubles (R2) grass league team ‘must’ field a team with 2 players of the opposite sex.INDOOR: If a league or tournament R4 team suffers an injury, the Ghost Rule shall apply and when it’s time for the Ghost to serve the remaining same sex person ‘must’ do so. The above 2 rulings will provide TFC Volleyball, teams & their opponents consistency, competitiveness and fair play taking into account the difference in playing surface.
