Volleyball players hit a ball over a net using any part of their bodies.
You score a point when the opponent team is either unable to return the volleyball over the net or prevent it from touching the court surface.
You don' t need to have the possession of the ball to score.
The first team to score 25 points by a margin of two points, wins the set.
