Cheap Volleyball Tickets
Volleyball has been around since 1895 and was first played in Holyoke, United States. It is a team sport in which two teams, having six players each confront each other, on a Volleyball court which is eighteen meters in length and nine meters in width and is equally divided into two equal halves, with a net in the center. The game commences with a ‘rally’ which simply means serving of the ball by one player on one of the teams. The player throws the ball while not crossing the boundary line of the court and hence the ball eventually goes over the net and lands in the opposing team’s domain. The opponents then have to keep the ball from hitting the ground, and the game moves forward. Each team is allowed to touch the ball thrice but touching it twice in a row is against the rules. The players usually hit the ball with hands and arms but on several occasions push it with any part of the body, which does not defy the rules. Volleyball consists of a vast array of rules and techniques which have gone through several transformations over the passage of years. There are basically six techniques that a team has to get a grip on; serve, pass, set, attack, block and dig. One has to go above and beyond to master these techniques as they are no child’s play.
