If the ball strikes the antennae, the pole, the referee, or the referee's stand, it is out of bounds. 12. Can I continue to play the ball if it strikes the net or wires outside the sideline? If the ball strikes the net outside of the sidebands, or the cables, ropes, posts, or antennas, it is deemed out of bounds and the rally is over. However, the player who served the ball may still take a free shot at the opposing team's setter if she wishes.
If the ball hits any part of her own side of the court, the player must start over from the serve. If any part of the ball goes into the opposing side of the court, the point is awarded to the opponents.
However, if the player cannot return the ball because of the position of the ball or herself, the referee can call "out" and award the point to the opponent. This happens very rarely in practice.
In conclusion, men's volleyball has many rules that might not be clear to novices, so do yourself a favor and learn the game before you try it for the first time!
If a ball strikes an antenna, the floor fully beyond the court, any of the nets or cables outside the antennas, the referee stand or pole, or the ceiling above a non-playable area, it is considered out. Any portion of a player's body may make contact with the ball. A player is awarded a point for hitting a ball that is out of play.
There are two ways to score in ball out: 1 The opposing team can hit the ball over the net into your side of the court to win the point; 2 If the opposing team misses the shot, you get a chance to shoot from the other side of the court. The first team to seven points wins the match.
Out of bounds plays a major role in ball out volleyball. If a ball goes out of bounds, the opposing team gets the opportunity to hit another ball. This can happen if a ball hits a player or any part of their clothing outside the playing area or if it goes over the sideline. Out of bounds plays cannot be returned by serving nor can they be scored on. They are dead balls that end the current sequence of events and start a new one. All players remaining on the court will continue to play until either someone touches the ball inside the boundary lines or time runs out. If a player is not active, there is no penalty for the team not playing them.
A legal ball has at least one solid surface.
The ball must travel over the net between the sidelines in volleyball. A line judge or referee can plainly detect whether the ball sailed round or even over the antenna when crossing the net by employing antennas. If something like this happens, a fault will be thrown. It is also against the rules for the ball or a player to make contact with the aerial during play.
However, if the ball goes out of sight behind the opposing team's block before reaching the net, then it is impossible to determine whether it crossed the net or not. In this case, we say that it "sailed past" the net. Only if you see the ball again in your court after it has passed the net can you call it back in.
Additionally, if the ball hits the ground in front of the opponent's net and doesn't rebound into the air, it is considered out. Even if you don't see where it went, they can claim rule violation if it affects the outcome of the game. For example, if you hit a kill shot and it turns out that the opponent was able to touch the ball before it hit the floor, they can argue that it interfered with their ability to return the ball and thus deserve a point for a deuce.
Finally, if the ball goes out of the playing field (behind the opposition's side lines) then it is considered lost. The players must start all over again from the serve.
E. A player may play a ball outside of the court as long as the ball is contacted on that player's side of the court, and it will only be regarded a valid return if it crosses the net and falls within the court's expanded limits.
Answering this question in 2019, you are not permitted to touch the net anywhere between the two antennas when playing the ball. This includes touching it with your hand or any other object except for the floor or the ceiling.
There is also no point penalty if someone touches the net with their hand or any other object besides the floor or the ceiling. However, if you do so at a dangerous time, then your opponent will get a point penalty.
During a rally, if you hit the net with the ball, it is called a "out". If the opposing team blocks the ball, it is called a "out". If they don't block the ball, then there is a chance that they will send it back into play for another shot. This is called a "indoor serve" and is valid on both defense and offense. If they do send the ball back into play, then the rally is over and players cannot leave their feet until the ball is out of bounds or the service game ends.
On defense, if an attacker touches the net with their hand or anything else except for the floor or the ceiling, then it is a point penalty for the opposing team. If they do so at a dangerous time, then it is a double point penalty.
