New third set rule for 2012/2013 season

Please note that for the forthcoming 2012/2013 season, the rules for the third set have been changed in order to allow close games more time to be decided. The winner of the deciding third set (and therefore, the match) will be the team that is the first to 7 points as before, but they must now be 2 points clear. This will be capped at 9 points, so in the event of the score being 8-8, the winner of the next point wins the match.

So the winning scores in the third set can only be 7-0, 7-1, 7-2, 7-3, 7-4, 7-5, 8-6, 9-7 or 9-8.
