How to Play Volleyball : Basic Volleyball Rules

How to Play Volleyball : Basic Volleyball Rules


Hi! This is Keith Sewell on behalf of Expert
Village. In this clip, we’re going to look at how to play volleyball, the basic overview
of the game. First, there are 6 players on each side of the court. A net divides the
court into 2 sides, and the height can vary by gender or age. The official height is 7′
11 5/8″ for men. 7′ 4 1/8″ for women. The object of the game is to send the ball over
the net and within the boundaries of the opponent’s court using a maximum of 3 hits and to prevent
the opponent from returning. A team wins by reaching a certain number of points before
the other team. We’ll talk about this more in our next clip. A team has a maximum of
3 hits to get it over the net. Usually, this consists of a bump, which is also called a
pass, a set, and a hit, which is also called a spike. No one player can contact the ball
consecutively, except on a block. If a ball hits the net, it’s still in play whether it
goes over or stays on the same side, as long as it’s not the third hit if it’s on the same
side. Players cannot contact the net or it’ll result in a loss of rally. A ball touching
the line is considered to be in, but at the same time, antennas are considered to be out
if the ball hits the antenna. It would be a loss of a rally.
