Yes, volleyball uses rally scoring.
Rally scoring is today's standard method of scoring in volleyball. It gives the point and serve to the team who won the rally, no matter which team served the ball.
The "old" volleyball scoring system is know as "side-out" scoring which essentially means that you can only score a point when you are serving. So for example, if the opposing team serves at you, and you win that play, then it is called a side-out, and it is your turn to serve for the next point. No points are given for side-outs, which lead to some very lengthy games (if teams are just siding-out back and forth). Side-out scoring was played to 15, win by 2. The "new" scoring system is known as "rally" scoring which means that points are given on every play, even side-outs. The change to this type of scoring was an attempt to speed up games, as well as give more weight to mistakes made by players. In almost all types of volleyball today (high school, club, international, and now even college volleyball), games are played to 25, win by 2. In beach volleyball however, games are played to 21.
