Volleyball Set - Play volleyball or newcomb (a variation of volleyball)!
Volleyball is a team sport in which two teams of six players are separated by a net. Each team tries to score points by grounding a ball on the other team’s court under organized rules.
The complete rules are extensive. But simply play proceeds as follows: a player on one of the teams begins a ’rally’ by serving the ball (tossing or releasing it and then hitting it with a hand or arm) from behind the back boundary line of the court over the net and into the receiving team’s court. The receiving team must not let the ball be grounded within their court. The team may touch the ball up to 3 times but individual players may not touch the ball twice consecutively. Typically the first two touches are used to set up for an attack an attempt to direct the ball back over the net in such a way that the serving team is unable to prevent it from being grounded in their court.
The rally continues with each team allowed as many as three consecutive touches until either (1): a team makes a kill grounding the ball on the opponent’s court and winning the rally; or (2): a team commits a fault and loses the rally. The team that wins the rally is awarded a point and serves the ball to start the next rally. A few of the most common faults include:
The ball is usually played with the hands or arms but players can legally strike or push (short contact) the ball with any part of the body.
This classic game can be played either on grass or the beach with 4-12 people of all ages. Includes net poles ball and stakes.
