Volleyball is great fun to play and courts can be discovered and booked through Playfinder. Volleyball is most often played indoor in sports halls. However, there are some sand volleyball courts in London which can be hired for beach volleyball. There are many benefits to playing volleyball such as improving your flexibility, balance, and coordination. Volleyball is also a very social sport, so whether you're an experienced player or just starting out we encourage you to give it a try!
It is played on a court divided into two sides by a net, with two teams of six players competing. The objective in volleyball is to send the ball over the net so that the other side can’t return it. Each team gets three attempts to hit the ball over the net. A common tactic is to set the ball high up close to the net so that a player is able to spike the ball downwards and make it difficult for the opposing team to keep the ball in play.
