Volleyball(Indoor)

Sport Overview

Volleyball involves two teams of six players hitting a ball over a net. Volleyball is the only ball game where players must not drop the ball, and the ball must be hit back to the opponent’s court within three touches (excluding blocks). The basic procedure is to receive a serve, toss the ball and spike the ball into the opponent’s court, and each team takes turns in offence and defence. As well as demanding superior skills on the part of individual players, the game requires solid teamwork and cooperation for understanding and sharing strategies.
