game is played with modified rules of volleyball, yet the net is lowered to
tennis level. Students use a big bouncy ball. Students have three chances to get
the ball over the net to the other team. The ball must bounce between each hit.
Students form three lines...the smaller the team, the more challenging. There
are two servers...the back right server and the front right server (if facing
the net). The back right server sets the ball and bounces it to the front right
server (who is facing the back right server). The front right server then bumps
the ball over the net (with back to the net) to the other team. The ball must
bounce before the opposing team returns it. Remember, it must bounce between
each hit. Attack serves are not allowed. That is, the serve must go in an upward
motion, not straight down to the opposing team. After the serve, spikes are
allowed as long as the body does not touch the net or breaks the plain. This
game can be played with two on two....VERY CHALLENGING! We had tournaments, then
the winner played the teachers! ANYONE can play this game.
