This was a couple years ago, so my memory is a little fussy, but I think it happened like:
Instructor gave us the instructions on the serve course. On first set, we all went right. On second set, the first guy went left and everybody (including me) assumed that we'd missed directions to swerve left on the second set. After the first guy did the mistake, we all leapt off that bridge one after another.
The coach didn't stop anyone or even say anything until he was reading off the scores. He was a stickler for following instructions, though. Also, this wasn't a large 12+ class like most. On my weekend, there were only like 5 or 6 of us at the class I believe.
I don't want to turn this thread into a whine-fest. I'm not unhappy about it, it was just frustrating at the time.
