RULES OF THE VOLLEYBALL GAME

So, consider the rules of volleyball. The game is played on a rectangular area measuring 18×9 meters. The volleyball court is divided in the middle by the net. The height of the net for men is 2.43 m, for women – 2.24 m. The game is played with a spherical ball with a circle of 65–67 cm, weighing 260–280 g.

Each of the two teams can have up to 14 players, 6 players can be on the field at any given time. The goal of the game is to finish off the ball to the floor with an attacking strike, that is, to the playing surface of the opponent’s court, or make him make a mistake. The game begins by introducing the ball into the game using a serve according to the draw.
After putting the ball into the game with a serve and a successful rally, the service goes to the team that won the point. The area by the number of players is conditionally divided into 6 zones. After each transition, the filing right passes from one team to another as a result of a point draw, players move to the next zone clockwise.

FEED IN VOLLEYBALL

It is made from the feed zone, which is located behind the back line of the playing court. A player who serves may not touch a playing field with any part of his body. This is especially true of jump innings. In flight, the ball may touch the net, but it should not touch the antennas or their mental extension up. If the serving player has violated the rules or thrown the ball outside the playing area (out), then the point is counted to the receiving team. If the ball touches the opponent’s field, then the point is counted to the serving team. The second serve is carried out by the same player, no transition occurs.

RECEIVING THE BALL IN VOLLEYBALL

Any player can accept the serve, but most often the blow falls on the players standing on the back line. Players of the receiving team can transfer the ball to each other, but after three touches the ball should be on the opponent’s court. You can also take the ball with any part of the body, but it is not permissible to hold it.

ATTACK IN VOLLEYBALL

A standard example of an attack looks like this: the ball is received by the back-line player (touch 1), brought to the connecting player (touch 2), in turn, he passes the ball to the attack player (touch 3). When attacking, the ball must fly within two antennas and above the net. Front line players can attack from anywhere. And the players of the back line should be behind the special three-meter line. Striking the ball above the line at the top of the net is prohibited, only the libero. There are different types of attacking strikes: direct (along the way) and side strikes, strikes with translation to the right or left and deceptive strikes (discounts).
