Volleyball - Overview

Volleyball is a team sport played by two teams of six players on a rectangular court divided by a net. 

The objective is to send the ball over the net and ground it on the opponent’s court, while also preventing the opposing team from doing the same. Points are scored when the ball touches the ground within the opponent’s court or if the opponent commits a fault. 

The game includes various techniques like serving, passing, setting, attacking, and blocking. It’s a fast-paced and dynamic sport played indoors or on the beach.

The headquarters of volleyball is located in Lausanne, Switzerland, where the Fédération Internationale de Volleyball (FIVB), the international governing body for the sport, is based. Additionally, each country typically has its national volleyball federation responsible for organizing domestic competitions, development programs, and representing the country in international volleyball events sanctioned by the FIVB.
