Two teams of two to six players hit a ball over a high net, and try to ground the ball on the opponent's court. Points are also scored when a team commits a foul or fault. The ball can only be touched three times by a team before it goes over the net. The first team to reach 25 points in wins a set, and three sets win a match. There are two types of volleyball: indoor and beach. Beach volleyball is played on sand, and indoor volleyball is played on a concrete court.
