A bump is often used to receive a hard serve, or a ball that is too low to pass on above your head, and is one of the basic skills to master in Volleyball. The precision is not the best, so to prepare an attack (with a spike) i.e. to "set", en overhand pass i preferred, with the fingertips.

To bump you put your hands together, thumb to thumb, closing one fist on the other to form a "ball". Then the incoming ball is hit from below with a distinct impact, and may gain high velocity.
