1549 0

Each team must play within its own playing area and space (except Rule 10.1.2). The ball may, however, be retrieved from beyond the free zone.

  

9.1 TEAM HITS

A hit is any contact with the ball by a player in play.

The team is entitled to a maximum of three hits (in addition to blocking), for returning the ball. If more are used, the team commits the fault of “FOUR HITS”.

9.1.1 CONSECUTIVE CONTACTSA player may not hit the ball two times consecutively (except Rules 9.2.3, 14.2 and 14.4.2).

9.1.2 SIMULTANEOUS CONTACTSTwo or three players may touch the ball at the same moment.

9.1.2.1 When two (or three) team-mates touch the ball simultaneously, it is counted as two (or three) hits (with the exception of blocking). If they reach for the ball, but only one of them touches it, one hit is counted. A collision of players does not constitute a fault.

9.1.2.2 When two opponents touch the ball simultaneously over the net and the ball remains in play, the team receiving the ball is entitled to another three hits. If such a ball goes “out”, it is the fault of the team on the opposite side.

9.1.2.3 If simultaneous hits by two opponents over the net lead to an extended contact with the ball, play continues.

9.1.3 ASSISTED HITWithin the playing area, a player is not permitted to take support from a team-mate or any structure/object in order to hit the ball.However, a player who is about to commit a fault (touch the net or cross the centre line, etc.) may be stopped or held back by a team-mate.

9.2 CHARACTERISTICS OF THE HIT

9.2.1 The ball may touch any part of the body.

9.2.2 The ball must not be caught and/or thrown. It can rebound in any direction.

9.2.3 The ball may touch various parts of the body, provided that the contacts take place simultaneously.Exceptions:

9.2.3.1 at blocking, consecutive contacts may be made by one or more player(s), provided that the contacts occur during one action;

9.2.3.2 at the first hit of the team, the ball may contact various parts of the body consecutively, provided that the contacts occur during one action.

9.3 FAULTS IN PLAYING THE BALL

9.3.1 FOUR HITS: a team hits the ball four times before returning it. 

9.3.2 ASSISTED HIT: a player takes support from a team-mate or any structure/object in order to hit the ball within the playing area.

She played for Atom Trefl Sopot (not Gdańsk). And Atom Trefl doesn't exist anymore. So she had to leave :) Reply

Fans, which volleyball rules you would change if you were in charge?

Re: @Axe in basketball it is quite easy to have a rather small off-bounds space, like 3 meters must be enough, because when the ball is out of bounds it is out of play. In volleyball it's not the case and if you watch volleyball alot you can see that despite the quite large space around the field, players are still getting hold back by commercial panels, sometimes directly behind it tables with people doing a job which is involved by the game. And it's not like lots of people can enjoy that same experience only a few hundreds of people maybe on the the first few front-rows and not the other thousands of people present there.
If the empty space between playing court and 'obstacles' will be enlarged then players might be more motivated to chase off-bound balls and save alot (almost) dozens more than that they mostly can do today. The seats of the audience don't even need to be further away from the playing field, just those commercial panels and benches with working people behind them pushed all the way back to the walls between the court and the seats. If you look at football (soccer if you're American) there is the audience even further away from the playing field even though it is the case that a ball out of bounds equals out of play too. There you never seem to have a decline of popularity of the game.
