Volleyball court marking and dimensions

  • Each team consists of six players.
  • To get play started, a team is chosen to serve by coin toss.
  • A player from the serving team throws the ball into the air and attempts to hit the ball so it passes over the net on a course such that it will land in the opposing team's court (the serve).
  • The opposing team must use a combination of no more than three contacts with the volleyball to return the ball to the opponent's side of the net.
  • These contacts usually consist three movements
    • bump or pass
    • set
    • spike
  • The team with possession of the ball that is trying to attack the ball as described is said to be on offense.
  • The team on defense attempts to prevent the attacker from directing the ball into their court: players at the net jump and reach above the top (and if possible, across the plane) of the net to block the attacked ball.
  • The game continues in this manner, rallying back and forth, until the ball touches the court within the boundaries or until an error is made.
  • If the ball is hit around, above, or through the block, the defensive players arranged in the rest of the court attempt to control the ball with a dig (usually a fore-arm pass of a hard-driven ball).
  • After a successful dig, the team transitions to offense.
  • A point is scored when the ball contacts the floor within the court boundaries or when an error is made.
  • when the ball strikes one team's side of the court, the other team gains a point;
  • when an error is made, the team that did not make the error is awarded a point
  • in either case paying no regard to whether they served the ball or not.
  • The game is going on till the first team to score 25 points by a two-point margin awarded the set.
  • Matches are best-of-five sets and the fifth set, if necessary, is usually played to 15 points.
  • causing the ball to touch the ground or floor outside the opponents' court or without first passing over the net;
  • catching and throwing the ball;
  • double hit: two consecutive contacts with the ball made by the same player;
  • four consecutive contacts with the ball made by the same team;
  • net foul: touching the net during play;
