Order of the Court

The volleyball court is divided into two sides by a high net. One team of six is played on each side. The teams switch by the end of each game. The court is marked with boundaries called sidelines and end lines. The area out of these boundaries is called free zone. If the ball lands in the free zone is called out-of-bounds.

How to Score A Point

One team serves, or hits the ball to begin the rally. In most leagues, only the team that has service can score points. It is awarded a point if it wins the rally. When the receiving team wins the rally, it is awarded a side-out, which means it gets to serve the ball and has a chance to score.
