Spring AGM Meeting - Updated to May 25, 2022

To all WWVL members, 

Spring AGM meeting updated to May 25th, 2022. Further info to be provided closer to the date.

To all of our WWVL members, 

Thanks for a great season!

We hope that you all are keeping safe with this most recent COVID wave. As our spring meeting will be upcoming shortly, we will update the website and team contacts as required. 

Thank you again for your patience and cooperation through the 2021-2022 season. We couldn't have done it without all of you! 


Updates to 5 Player Rule/ Subsitutions

To all WWVL members,

In order for our league to be fluid and accommodate changing needs and to allow games to be played/minimize defaults,  effective immediately, the following will be allowed effective Monday, Dec 6, 2021 and ONLY for the duration of the 2021-2022 Season. These new rules have been provided to the MVOA, who will communicate it down to the refs.

Teams can start and play with 5 players:

If a team only have 5 players at the starting match time, they will be allowed to start without penalty.  This overrides the following guideline, E.6.2,  in a temporary capacity for the 2021-2022 Season . The following are the scenarios:

  • If a 6th player arrive, they will join the rotation in the following set.
  • In the case of 5 players, 3 players will always be considered front row players.
  • When the “ghost” player rotate into position 1 to serve, that team will lose the serve.

In the case of an injury, if a team only have 5 players, they can continue playing, but the injured player cannot re-enter the match.  The “ghost” player will also be used. 


  • In relation to substitutions, we will be allowing the following, in a temporary capacity for the 2021 – 2022 Season which overrides the current guideline, E.5. Substitutions.
    • 2 substitutions without tier convenor approval
    • 2 Substitutions can be taken from either a lower or 1 from a lower tier and 1 one from a higher tier (maximum 2 tiers higher than your current tier – example Tier 6 , could get a player from tier 4) without approval from a tier convenor
    • Substitutions can sub for more than 3 games per round robin

E.5 Guideline currently states the following:

      • E.5 SUBSTITUTIONS If a team is concerned that they cannot field six players for an entire match from their roster, the team may use a player registered in the same or lower WWVL tier as a substitute for the match (where Tier 1 is the highest tier). Teams in the lowest tier may only use players registered in the tier directly above or in the same tier. The substitution (player name, registered team and tier) must be noted on the match scoresheet. • Teams may only use one (1) substitute from a different team per match. • Players may substitute three (3) times for any one team per round robin.
