Volleyball is played by two teams of six players on a court divided by a net. The object is to send, or 'volley' the ball over the net and score the most points - these are earned by making the ball touch the ground on the opposition's side of the court. Players can use their arms and hands to hit the ball a maximum of three times in their own court before it must be hit over the net to the opposition side.

The ball is put in play with a service: hit by the server over the net to their opponents. The round continues until the ball is grounded on the playing court, goes out of the marked lines on the court or a team fails to return it properly.

The team that wins that round scores a point. When the receiving team wins a point, it gains a point and the right to serve, and its players rotate one position clockwise.
