First, what is Volleyball?
Wikipedia has this basic description about Volleyball:
“Volleyball is a team sport in which two teams made up of six players are separated by a net. Each team attempts to score points by grounding a ball on the other team’s court under organized rules.
It also states that Beach volleyball, is a variation of the game played on sand and with only two players per team.”
However, I’ve played volleyball for almost 20 years and most of the recreational volleyball I’ve played is with six players whether I’ve played indoors or outdoors. (I’m sure that is to allow more people to participate). I’ve played and coached all ladies volleyball in recreational leagues and our own USBA Ladies team. I’ve also played lots of recreational Co-Ed volleyball(mixed men and women teams). In fact, I met my husband playing indoor Co-Ed volleyball.
