Sport presentation

A team sport contested on a rectangular court by two teams of six players. It is played using a ball and most often indoors. The two teams each occupy a half-court marked by a net, the bottom of which is a metre high and the top of which varies in height according to the age of the players. Points are scored by grounding the ball in the opponent’s court, or if the opposing team commits a fault or fails to return the ball properly. A volleyball team is composed of three forwards and three backs. The team that scores the most points wins the match.
