Arab Games 2011: Volleyball–Indoor

Volleyball is a game of constant motion. A team can touch the ball three times on its side of the net. The usual pattern is a dig (an underarm pass made with the forearms), a set (an overhead pass made with the hands), and a spike (the overhead attacking shot).

The ball is served into play. Teams can also try to block the opponent’s spike as it crosses the net. Power and height have become vital components of international teams, but the ability of teams and coaches to devise new strategies, tactics, and skills is crucial for continued success. There are six players on court in a volleyball team, each of whom must rotate one position clockwise every time their team wins back service from the opposition. Only the three players at the net positions can jump and spike or block near the net. The backcourt players can only hit the ball over the net if they jump from behind the attack line, also known as the three-metre line, which separates the front and back parts of the court.

The Fédération Internationale de Volleyball (FIVB), where the first regulations were formulated, was founded in 1947 in Paris. FIVB consists of 220 affiliated federations and governs, manages, and promotes all forms of volleyball and beach volleyball worldwide.
