a volleyball serve is when one team either underhand or overhand 'serves' to the other team; when one person goes to the back line of the volleyball court, tosses the ball, and contacts it with their hand, or leaves it on their hand and hits it over the net with their fist. they must serve from behind the serving line.
Serving is the start of the rally in volleyball.
The serve is won either depending on tossing a coin before set, or scoring a point. Unless it is beginning of set, the team must rotate before the next player can serve, typically the one last shifted in from the substitutes. The player in turn may serve 4 consecutive times if the opposing team doesn't score. Thereafter a new shift must be done with the next player in turn to serve. Any points scored after a missing shift are deleted and the opposite team gets the right to serve. The scoring doesn't depend on which side has hit the serve, each ball gives a point to one team.
There are two basic serve techniques - Underhand and Overhand Serve. This refers to whether the player strikes the ball from below, at waist level, or first tosses the ball in the air and then hits it above shoulder level, similar to a spike.
Underhand serve is considered very easy to receive and is rarely employed in high-level competitions.
A serve is delivered from behind the baseline, between the sidelines. In Volley 2000 the underhand serve is allowed even from the 3 m line.
Famous serve variations:
Sky Ball Serve: a specific type of underhand serve occasionally used in beach volleyball, where the ball is hit so high it comes down almost in a straight line. This serve was invented and employed almost exclusively by the Brazilian team in the early 1980s and is now considered outdated. In Brazil, this serve is called Jornada nas Estrelas (Star Trek).
Line and Cross-Court Serve: refers to whether the ball flies in a straight trajectory parallel to the side lines, or crosses through the court in an angle.
Top Spin: an overhand serve where the ball gains topspin through wrist snapping. This spin causes the ball to drop faster than it appears to a passer receiving it.
Floater: an overhand serve where the ball is hit with no spin so that its path becomes unpredictable. This type of serve can be administered while jumping or standing. This is akin to a knuckleball in Baseball.
Jump Serve: an overhand serve where the ball is first tossed high in the air, then the player makes a timed approach and jumps to make contact with the ball. There is usually much topspin imparted on the ball. This is the most popular serve amongst college and professional teams.
Jump Float: This is a serve like the jump serve and the floater. The ball is tossed lower than a topspin jump serve, but contact is still made while in the air. This serve is becoming more popular amongst college and professional players because it has a certain unpredictability in its flight pattern.
Round-House Serve: the player stands with one shoulder facing the net, tosses the ball high and hits it with a fast circular movement of the arm. The ball is hit with the palm of the hand, creating a lot of topspin.
Hybrid Serve: An overhand serve delivered similarly to a top spin serve; however, it has more pace than a floater, but has a similar unpredictable path.
The serve is the first hit. To serve, the player stands behind the serving line (the line at the back of the court) and must hit the ball over the net without making the ball go out of bounds.
it's when the ball hits the net on a serve but still goes over the net which is still in play
It is when the ball touches the net on a serve, but still goes over, in-bounds.
A let is when the ball is served into play and the ball hits the top of the net but continues to go over the net. The ball continues to be played without stoppage.
Yes, It is allowed. But when the ball passes over the net brushing it, no player of either team must touch the net.
You are not allowed to cross the end line before the ball leaves your hand. Also, you're not allowed to catch the ball if you make a bad toss. You have to let it drop before the ref issues you a redo.
In professional, college, high school, and almost all other regulation volleyball games a player does not get the opportunity for a reserve if the first serve does not go in. This rule may be used by some youth programs because they are just learning but any official game it does not.
If a let is given it means you play the point again, for example 1. You get your first serve in and when playing the point you get a let. You now get to play your first and second serve. 2. You miss your first serve but get your second in and get a let during the the point. You now get to play JUST YOUR SECOND SERVE.
In a game of volleyball, a player has 10 seconds to serve the ball. Once you get the ball, wait for the ref to blow his whistle. This indicates that you can serve. If you toss but dont like it, let the ball drop. The ref will blow his whistle and you may start over, with a new 10 seconds. But, you can only re-toss once.
you tell him it doesnt matter what sex you are if you want to see the vollyball game than you have the right to do so!
it doesn't. you can't let it touch the ground
=To win lots of points and beat the other team.=
a tennis net
Nobody really knows that answer. William Morgan invented the game of volleyball in the 1890s and it is known that beach volleyball started in California in the 1920s. But who played the first game or created it, history has not recorded. The first beach volleyball was played in Santa Monica, Californa and the rules were made by people pretty much copying indoor volleyball. Whoever did was amazing and a hero to man kind. We will thank him forever! Answer: Let's just put it this way, we were playing team beach volleyball on the beaches of Perth, Australia back in the 1960's, and Australia is not really a 'volleyball' country, though it certainly get into its beaches!
the game will not play
Let's are extremely rare in table tennis and you really shouldn't worry about it But just for the beneficial feeling of helping somebody I'm pretty sure there are infanite Just like tennis>
That is called a let. A server is allowed to retake that serve without penalty. A server may serve an unlimited number of lets during a point without being penalized.
