Maybe you’ve played this game in gym class. Maybe you’ve played it on a beach. Well guess what? You’re going to have to cross paths with volleyball sooner or later because it’s considered the second most popular sport in the world!
The sport involves two teams separated by a net who contact a volleyball a maximum of three times before it crosses the net to the other team. If the ball hits the floor on the other side of court in bounds or the opponents cannot return the ball, the serving team gets a point.
