Double-doubleDouble-double is defined as an individual performance in which a player accumulates a double digit number total in two of five statistical categories, including aces, kills, blocks, digs, and assists, during one match. The most common double-double combination is digs and assists, frequently accomplished by setters, although sometimes achieved by liberos and defensive specialists. The next most frequent double-double is kills and digs, usually achieved by hitters (outside hitters or middle blockers) who are versatile defensively. Hitters (outside hitters, middle blockers, or opposite hitters) also sometimes accomplish a double-double of kills and blocks.

A double-double is regarded as an indication of superior all-around individual performance. Double-doubles are fairly common, and in some matches more than one player manages to record one, most likely when a match exceeds three sets, particularly five-set matches.
