Proposed Rule Change

11.H. Items on the Court. If any item a player is/was wearing or carrying lands on their end of the court, unless the item lands in the non-volley zone as a result of a volley, the ball remains in play even if it hits the item

Original Rule Text

11.H. Items on the Court. If any item a player is/was wearing or carrying lands on their side of the court, unless the item lands in the non-volley zone as a result of a volley, the ball remains in play even if it hits the item.

Reasoning Behind Suggested Change

To bring this rule current with the correct terminology used with respect to ends of the court rather than the right and left side of the court.  See rule 5.B. Change of Ends.  Players switch ends, not sides.
