Volleyball Rules

NEW TO VOLLEYBALL?

The popularity of Volleyball is rising in the UK, with most universities and many schools having the sport available in some form. 

If you recently started or never played we would be happy to welcome you and help you on your way to becoming a great player!

BASICS

  • 2 teams of 6 players each

  • To score a point the ball must touch the ground in the opposing team's court, be touched by the opposing team before its lands out of bounds, or if the opposition commits a foul

  • Each team may touch the ball 3 times before the ball has to go over the net. A block at the net doesn't count as a touch.

  • The ball may touch any part of your body, but you can't touch it twice without someone else touching it in between your touches.

  • Games are best of 5 Sets, played to 25 points. In the event of a 5th set, it is played to only 15 points.
