By Olympic rules, volleyball matches are contested between two teams of six volleyball players, separated by a tall volleyball net. Only the team serving the volleyball may score. Volleyball players score by grounding the volleyball onto their opponent's side of the court, oftentimes with a strong over-hand palm smash aimed down toward the floor: "spiking" the ball. Other common ways to come in contact with volleyball are: passing (between team mates), setting (to gently send a ball high in the air, setting up for a team mate's spike), and blocking (spikes).
Volleyball teams are allowed to make contact with the volleyball three times before it must go over the volleyball net, and to the other team. The same volleyball player may not make contact with the volleyball consecutively.
The first team to score 25 points wins that game, the "set". To win a complete volleyball match, the winning team must win three sets.
For most versions of volleyball, gameplay related rules remain the same. Most volleyball variations come in the amount of people per team. For play volleyball on the beach, their are only two teammates per volleyball team. For casual, recreational games, the only limit on volleyball player's is the amount of people who can fit around the volleyball net.
