What is the difference between volleyball and tennis?

Volleyball has a higher net and you actually touch the ball while you spike it, set, bump, and serve it. With tennis you have a racket to hit the ball back and forth over a net that is touching the floor. Volleyball is always a team sport as well, where as tennis requires one player. If you're playing indoor volleyball, you need six players on each team, but if you're playing beach volleyball, you only need two. The ball is not allowed to touch the ground, but you're allowed one bounce in tennis. In volleyball if the ball lands on the line, it's in, but in tennis when it lands on the line, it's out. Also, the way the two sports count points is different. Good volleyball is always played with a bump, a set, and then some sort of attack (there are lots of different kinds), but with tennis you just hit the ball back and forth over the net. There's a big difference between them.
