Volleyball is a team sport played by two teams on a playing court divided by a net. The object of the game is for each team to send the ball regularly over the net to ground it on the opponent's court, and to prevent the ball from being grounded on its own court. The rally continues until the ball touches the ground/floor, goes "out" or a team fails to return it to the opponent's court or commits a fault.

At Al Raha, courts are laid out in the desert sand and if you don’t have a large enough group of your own, you can always entice the other guests to make up the teams. The fun and the soft sand of the court are simply irresistible.


Tips to Rally about:

  • The ball is put into play by the right back-row player who serves the ball by hitting it over the net to the opponent's court.
  • A team is allowed to hit the ball three times (in addition to the block contact) to return it to the opponent's court.
  • A player is not allowed to hit the ball twice consecutively, except when attempting a block.

    VOLLEYBALL SCORING SYSTEMS

    RALLY POINT SCORING
    The team winning a rally scores a point (Rally Point System). When the receiving team wins a rally, it gains a point and the right to serve, and its players rotate one position clockwise.

    The best of three or best of five games will win matches. Each non-deciding game will be won by the team that first scores 25 points with a minimum two-point advantage (no scoring cap). If there is a deciding game, it will be won by the team that first scores 15 points with a minimum two-point advantage (no scoring cap).

    SIDEOUT SCORING
    Only the serving team may score a point, except in the deciding game when rally-point scoring is used. When the receiving team wins a rally, it gains the right to serve (also scoring a point in the deciding game), and its players rotate one position clockwise.

    A team wins a game by scoring 15 points with a two-point advantage and wins the match by winning the best of three or five games. In the event of a 16-16 tie, the team scoring the 17th point wins a non-deciding game with only a one-point advantage. In a deciding game there is no point cap.
