Good point. Outdoor rules add the clause "and it does not cause
boundary lines to move" to their "out" definition.
USAV beach rules:
11.3 BALL "IN"
The ball is "in" when after being put in play, its first contact
with the ground is on the playing court or a boundary line.
11.4 BALL "OUT"
11.4.1 The ball is "out" when:
22.214.171.124 after being put in play its first contact with the ground is
completely outside the playing court and it does not cause
boundary lines to move;
I will add the word "indoor" to the FAQ text for clarity.
