Improper server

Clarification please.
When an improper server is recognized. What is the proper procedure for handling this?
According to rulle 6 section 3 penalty 2, it states that
"For an improper server or illegal replacement found in the set, loss of rally shall be awarded as soon as the improper server server or illegal replacement is discovered and verified.
a. when an improper server is discover prior to contact of the first serve by the opposing team, all points earned by the improper server shall be cancelled.


My question is this. Do you also award the opposing team a point. The rule does not state this, only a loss of rally. I know that loss of rally means a point is awarded by definition. But is this an execption, because you are already penalizing the team by cancelling the points earned. Everywhere else in the rule book when a penalty is given it says "loss of rally/point" but it does not say point in this instance.

The answer is the opponent is always going to get a point. A LOR always includes a point awarded to the team receiving the ball. Most of the time, the LOR/point is used because it depends whether the fault is on the serving or the receiving team. Good question.

Point (no pun intended) of clarification: if the receiving team won the rally, you wouldn't give an ADDITIONAL point for the wrong server. Think of it as "one point to the receiving team for the wrong server instead of a kill, error, etc." They wouldn't get a point for winning the rally and an extra point for the other team having a wrong server.

Good point (also no pun intended), Felix.
