A game of volleyball involves an active contest between two teams with six players in each team. The aim or objective of the game is to ground the ball in the court on the opponent's side. Some basic rules cover the game of volleyball, just as in the case of any other game. The game of volleyball was introduced into the Olympics in 1964.
The game is initiated by a player on either side of the net releasing the ball from his grasp and hitting it hard enough so that it reaches the other side of the net. The opponents have to make sure the ball doesn't touch the ground in any case.
The ball is allowed to be tossed around among the team members, and they can touch in on three different occasions. But an individual player is not permitted to touch the ball on two consecutive occasions.
The contention revolves around the ball being grounded on the other side. The game found itself in the Olympics in 1924 and is an inherent part of the games now.
Beach volleyball evolved as a subsidiary of volleyball with almost similar rules. The only exception being that beach-volleyball is played among two individuals, and it is played on a beach. Beach-volleyball found itself in the Summer Olympics in 1996.
It is wrong to say that one can develop a good height if one plays a lot of volleyball. Rather, tall and long players find their height an asset in winning games of volleyball.
