Re: overhand the serve?
Ron's statement "Ugly as it may be, it is used, and is legal" is not
accurate under all rulesets.
Mens Collegiate indoor (USAV indoor rules, I believe?), is quite
different than USAV beach, and AVP rules with respect to what you can
do on the first ball. In USAV indoor, you can legally double contact
a first-ball set with finger action in a single attempt. You cannot
legally double contact the ball using finger action under USAV beach
or AVP rules.
The "beach dig" scenario is different still.
See my USAV Beach/indoor rules differences page for a more thorough
treatment of this somewhat involved subject.
