Net sports are sports where two opposing players or teams compete while being separated by a regulated net that sets the scoring and rules of the game. Games involving nets may include special equipment such as rackets, but others, like volleyball, only require that the players use only their hands to hit the ball over the net to the opposing side. Scoring in net sports are most often determined when the opponent does not return the ball back across the net, or lets it touch the ground or bounce twice depending on the sport. Net sports promote multiple athletic skills while also remaining approachable by the average player. The equipment required for net sports are lightweight and affordable which allows for humans of all ages to join these games.

Volleyball Net

Volleyball nets are the primary obstacle and separating element between the two teams in a game of volleyball. Splitting the court down the middle, the height of the net dictates how teams will strategize their ball placement and setup offensive and defense formations to successfully send the ball across the divider. Volleyball nets are typically made with black nylon netting with white headbands.

Volleyball nets span the entire width of the court (29’6” | 9 m) and are held rigid by outer poles typically set 3’ (.91 m) from the court. The center height of a volleyball net differs for men’s and women’s play with men’s nets regulated at a height of 7’ 11.69” (2.43 m) and women’s at 7’ 4.35” (2.24 m). The dimensions of the playing court are often identified on the net surface by two antenna extending 32” (80 cm) above the net. Volleyball nets have a surface height of 39” (1 m) from top to bottom and are constructed with a polypropylene or nylon netting with a mesh size of 3.9” (10 cm) and are capped with stiff headbands along the perimeters.
