Sitting Volleyball

Make no mistake, sitting volleyball is no leisurely pursuit. The team’s event requires lightning-fast reflexes as competitors hit the ball over the net with the aim of landing it in the opposing team’s half of the court. Points are awarded to the team that wins the rally.

Playing on a smaller court than traditional volleyball and with a lower net, sitting volleyball competitors are positioned closer together on the floor. As mixed teams of six bump, set, spike and slide, they must have at least one buttock in contact with the floor at all times.
