Rules of play
The ball is served underhand, starting at the right side of the field and played diagonally to the opposite field. The receiving side need to let the ball bounce before throwing it back, and the serving side must also wait for the bounce. Only the third ball may be hit at once, by means of a volley (with a bounce is also permitted).
Points can only be scored by the serving party. You have a point if the opponent fails to hit a ball back, hits the ball into touch, does not stop the served ball first, volleys from the non-volley-zone or is hit by the ball himself. The game ends when one of the parties scores eleven points with two points difference. The non-volley-zone is 2.13m long and is the zone where the player always has to collide with the ball to throw it to the other players. The non-volley-zone is also called the "kitchen".
When a game scores a point, the same person serves on, but from the other side (left-right). When a player loses the point, his team-mate serves from the side where he is at that moment. If he also loses his service, it passes to the other side, where the player on the right begins. Only at the beginning of the game only one player serves, after which he passes to the other side.
The score works as follows: 1-0-1 means serving party has 1 point, others have none yet and it is the first server.
Score understood? What does 4-5-2 mean? The serving party has 4 points, the other 5 and the second server of the 4 points is next.
