Volleyball is a team game which has six players that play on either side of the net. A set of rules decide the score that each team is able to make against the other team. The game begins with a player from one team throwing the ball using hand or arm over the net so that the opposite team can receive it on their court.
The basic rule is to prevent the received ball from hitting the ground so that it can be thrown back to the other team with up to 3 touches from the team. A foul happens if one person from the team touches the ball more than twice (double-hit) while it’s on their side of the net. Also, a team scores a point by throwing the call across the net to the other team’s side such that it hits the ground directly or the player fails to send it back over the net.
Thus there are basically two ways to score a point-a) one is by throwing the ball on the ground of the opponent team passing over the net b) another is if the opponent team is unable to render the ball back into the court of serving team.
Volleyball is played in different variations in different parts. There are some rules for the serve in the game of volleyball. 1) The ball has to be served underhand or overhand. 2) The player who serves the ball must stand behind the end line on his/her side of the court while making the serve.3) the served ball must cross the net and reach the opponent side. 4) The ball has to be clearly visible to the opponent team.
Similarly there are rules for rotation. 1) Teams change sides as the other team wins the serve.2) Clockwise rotation of the players happens
