Intramural matches often consist of a best 2-of-3 games format with either rally scoring (a point is scored on all serves regardless of who serves) or sideout scoring (a point is scored only when the serving team scores). Rally scoring games may be to 25 or 30 points. Sideout scored games are often to 15 points.
The libero position is not often utilized in recreational leagues. Additionally, substitutions may be limited to specific points in a game.
Co-rec leagues employ a variety of rule variations to encourage and/or limit participation by particular players including requiring a member of each gender to contact the ball when two or three contacts are made by a team to return the ball over the net. The service rotation may be required to alternate between genders.
