Traditional Formats

Wallyball is typically played in men’s, women’s, and co-rec formats. For programs where participation is limited, open (mixed) leagues are common. Teams consist of two to four players, with substitutes if desired. League play and tournaments are offered.


Wallyball is self-officiated by the participants. A court monitor can be used to answer questions and settle disputes.


Most programs adopt their rules from the rules set forth by the American Wallyball Association and make the necessary adjustments and medications to fit their needs.
