Hey Randy,
The USTA puts out the following:
Red Division Ralleyball Format - Facility Procedure Manual
10 Easy Steps
For the USA Team Tennis Ralleyball Format
It's a complete administrative guide that gives step-by-step instructions on
setting up a Ralleyball league. It also has forms and attachments (like
scoring sheets, match schedules, sample team names, ...) that help you
administer the league.

As far the format goes; the above manual has a Ralleyball Format which
has a good description of setup and play. But, there are different variations of
play. You may want to tailor the rules slightly to suit your needs. To
distribute the rules I would suggest creating an electronic file (Microsoft Word)
that contain the basic rules, editing them to suit your needs, and sending them
out in email or putting up a simple one page website yourself. You can get
access to web space free of charge.

I would suggest a couple of options to assist you. Every USTA Section has a
Tennis Service Rep (TSR) who is employed by the section to assist
organizations and individuals in starting programs like yours. Call your USTA
Section office and see if they can help.

Secondly, the USTA offers Recreation Coach Workshops (RCW). These workshops
train recreation level instructors on coaching basics and formats, like
Ralleyball. Participants learn how to work with large groups and learn
progressions on how to get students rallying fast. The training comes with the
Ralleyball Manual and other references, plus it has sample transition balls which
are great for Ralleyball play. RCWs can actually be used as a fundraiser. The
USTA pays stipends to hosts who organize them and pay the trainers who teach
the class. If you can't run your own you can find one in your area for your
instructors to attend. The link to more information on RCWs is below. It
describes the RCW benefits and has a link to the 2006 schedule.
Recreation Coaches Workshop
Hope this helps.
