Volleyball is a popular team sport in which two teams of six players are separated by a net. Each team tries to score points by grounding a ball on the other team's court under organized rules. The complete set of rules are extensive,  but play essentially proceeds as follows: a player on one of the teams begins a 'rally' by serving the ball tossing or releasing it and then hitting it with a hand or arm , from behind the back boundary line of the court, over the net, and into the receiving team's court. The team may touch the ball up to 3 times, but individual players may not touch the ball twice consecutively. The rally continues, with each team allowed as many as three consecutive touches, until either 1 : a team makes a kill , grounding the ball on the opponent's court and winning the rally; or 2 : a team commits a fault and loses the rally. The team that wins the rally is awarded a point and serves the ball to start the next rally.
If you have ever seen indoor or beach volleyball being played, you are probably aware of the major differences between the sports. For example, one is played on the beach, while the other takes place in a gymnasium. In addition, indoor volleyball has a larger court with six players per side, while beach volleyball at least the organized professional version is played with only two players on each team. Less experienced players might not know, however, that the scoring is different in each sport, as indoor volleyball consists of five sets, while outdoor volleyball is only played to three sets.
