Men's Open League Divisions 3 and lower divisions- Players may substitute on and off the court between points, there is no restriction on the number of substitutions within each set. If the 1st Referee feels a team is using this substitution rule to gain an advantage, they will be given a warning and if this continues the Sanction Scale will be used.
