Besides the two main referees, in volleyball we also have a scorer, assistant scorer and line judges.

  

27 LINE JUDGES

27.1 LOCATION

If only two line judges are used, they stand at the corners of the court closest to the right hand of each referee, diagonally at 1 to 2 m from the corner.

Each one of them controls both the end line and side line on his/her side.

For FIVB, World and Official Competitions, it is compulsory tohave four line judges.

They stand in the free zone at 1 to 3 m from each corner of thecourt, on the imaginary extension of the line that they control.

27.2 RESPONSIBILITIES

27.2.1 The line judges perform their functions by using flags (40 x 40 cm), to signal:

27.2.1.1 the ball ”in” and “out” whenever the ball lands near their line(s);

27.2.1.2 the touches of "out" balls by the team receiving the ball;

27.2.1.3 the ball touching the antenna, the served ball and the third hit of the team crossing the net outside the crossing space, etc.;

27.2.1.4 any player (except the server) stepping outside of his/her court at the moment of the service hit;

27.2.1.5 the foot faults of the server;

27.2.1.6 any contact with the top 80 cm of the antenna on their side of the court by any player during his/her action of playing the ball or interfering with the play;

27.2.1.7 the ball crossing the net outside the crossing space into the opponent's court or touching the antenna on his/her side of the court.

27.2.2 At the 1st referee's request, a line judge must repeat his/her signal.

WL 2017: Last point and celebration of Slovenia (VIDEO)

I think that they proved it on volleyball court that they deserve to play in the group 1 among best teams. They were way better than other teams in group 2. Any other decision than that would be unfair. Reply

WL 2017: Slovenia rout Japan to win Group 2, still hoping to advance to elite division (VIDEO)

Re: @John Doek it is pretty obvious that we were not talking about the broadcasting quality of the finals but about the (lack of) consequences of this result in the future WL. If the FIVB holds on to that new idea of them then the result of this final which means 'Slovenia goes to Group 1' and 'Italy goes to Group 2' will never happen. That idea of the FIVB eliminates the competitive fairness of the WL and destroys fair chances of small countries like everyone should know which countries they are by now.

So, if Slovenia doesn't promovate it is without a doubt a waste of time.
