When I first started playing, points could only be scored by the serving team, and games went to 15 points. Matches consisted of the best two out of three games. Now volleyball has changed to rally scoring. Essentially, teams score points whenever the other team messes up, and a point is awarded on every serve.
People also ask, how many points are needed to win a game of volleyball?
Volleyball matches are played to the best of five sets. The first four sets are played to 25 points, with the final set being played to 15 points. A team must win a set by two points. There is no ceiling, so each set continues until one of the teams gains a two-point advantage.
What is the rules of volleyball?
Points are made on every serve for wining team of rally (rally-point scoring). Player may not hit the ball twice in succession. (A block is not considered a hit.) Ball may be played off the net during a volley and on a serve.
