Volleyball Net

Elevation drawing measuring professional volleyball nets with dimensions and sizes

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.

Volleyball is a team sport in which players use their hands to hit a ball over the net in an attempt to land the ball on the opponent’s ground. Each team of six players has a maximum of three consecutive touches, a rally, to attempt to return the ball across the net.
