Volleyball Match

A typical field volleyball match is played between two teams of 6 players on each side. The match consists of 5 sets. The first four sets are played for 25 points and the last set is played for 15 points. A team wins a set if they score 25 (or 15 points in last set) points with a difference of 2 points. The side to win the maximum number of sets, wins the match.

In PLAYINGA, we have kept very minimal restrictions. For a team sport, such as volleyball, there is a minimum requirement of 2 players per team and no set or point restrictions.
