hello, we are the essex blades volleyball club
Volleyball is essentially a more complicated game of "don’t let the balloon touch the floor". Both teams can have up to 12 players within the squad, with 6 players on the court at a time. To win, you have to beat the opposition within 5 sets. In each set, you have to be the first to 25 points, ensuring you beat the opponent with 2 clear points. You can win points through serving, spiking, blocking and also making errors.
