Volleyball is a game played by two teams (usually six players on a side) in which the players use their hands to bat a ball back and forth over a high net, trying to make the ball touch the court floor within the opponents’ playing area before it can be returned. To prevent this, a player on the opposing team bats the ball up and toward a teammate before it touches the court surface. That teammate may then volley it back across the net or bat it to a third teammate who volleys it across the net. A team is allowed only three touches of the ball before it must be returned over the net.
