|Rule Submission Title||Incorrect player or position|
|USAP Board Voting Status||Failed|
|USAP Rules Committee Voting Status||Failed. 1) We'd be asking every single match to change the end of match procedure ( requiring all teams to sign the scoresheet) for a relatively rare occurrence. 2) This drastically reduces the amount of time that they identify an out of position error. 3) We don't want a referee error to substantially affect the outcome of the match 4) If passed, the change about referees correcting players out of position would address this.|
|Existing Rule #||4B10|
|Proposed Rule Change|
The offending team can be faulted until the next serve occurs or prior to the score sheet being signed by both teams at the end of the match.
|Original Rule Text|
The offending team can be faulted until the next serve occurs or prior to the score sheet being returned to the tournament operations desk.
