Jenna Daraio Medical Report Date: March 8th, 2013 Volleyball Volleyball is a sport that originated in the united states and has been around for 118 years. This has became a popular sport worldwide. Volleyball is a sport played on a court, that is 60 feet by 30 feet. The net is located midcourt, it is 32 feet long, 3 feet wide and stands 7 feet 4 inches tall from the floor. This sport is played by two teams of six, one team on each side of the net. The objective of this sport is for your team to ground the ball on the opponent’s side of the net. You also want to be able to prevent the opponent team from being able to ground the ball on your side of the court, if they do so it awards them a point. The ball is put into play beginning with a serve by the offense team. The person in the position of the back right corner is the server. A serve can be overhand or underhand, and you are to announce the score before each serve. A team returning the ball is only granted 3 hits. If a team hits the ball four or more times, or if the ball is hit by one team member more than once in a row the ball is granted to the opposing team. A team returning the ball to the server should do so by rolling it underneath the net. Faults and fouls are the penalties in volleyball. If a referee calls a fault or foul the opposite team may be rewarded with a point, or possession of the ball.
