There are three main types of volleyball serves. There is the underhand serve, the overhand serve, and the jump serve. Within these three serves, there are more specific serves, such as the floater serve, the topspin serve, the jump float serve, and the jump topspin serve.
"Topspin" is a spin that has the ball's "top" spinning **forward**, causing the ball to go down faster.

Topspin lobs are a great tennis shot to have. A topspin lob adds depth to your game and keeps your opponent guessing. Instead of always hitting them volleys when they are at the net, slip in a few topspin lobs. You better hit the topspin lob properly because if you don't, your opponent will most likely crush it in your face. A topspin pulls your opponent out of position on the court as they run down the lob. A topspin lob is not for singles only. It can be highly effective when both opponents are at the net in doubles as well. To hit a topspin lob you brush up the back of the ball from 6 0'clock to 12 o'clock similar to how you would on a topspin groundstroke. However, you need height. Open up your racquet face so that it is angled more towards the sky. This will help get the trajectory you need. Also make sure to hit with authority. Otherwise the topspin will fall short. To practice your topspin lob have a partner feed you a forehand. Try to hit a topspin lob that sails high in the air and lands close to the baseline. Do this 10 times and repeat on your backhand.
A topspin serve is where the ball is struck so that it is spinning towards the direction it's hit. a spin like this will make the ball dive and hit the floor.A floater serve is a serve where there isn't any spin on the ball and so it floats and can move in the air unpredictably. hope this helps!
It is used to confuse your oppent. Topspin makes the ball look like it is going fly far long but it doesnt. It has a high bounce that can forse your opent to go behind the baseline.
You must hit on the top of the ball at the highest point of the bounce.
basic: forehand, backhand, serve, lob. advanced: topspin, slice, flat, and dropshot
