Paralympic Sport A-Z: Sitting volleyball

Sitting volleyball was introduced to the world at the Arnhem 1980 Paralympic Games.

It requires a smaller court (10m x 6m) and a lower net, and the game is considerably faster than standing volleyball. It’s played in a best-of-five set format, and the first to reach 25 points (with at least a 2-point lead) wins the game.

Teams consist of mixed classes in male and female events, with six on the court at a time. At all times, an athletes’ pelvis must be touching the ground, and service blocks are allowed.

At the London 2012 Games, 198 athletes competed in the sport.

Sitting volleyball highlights - London 2012 Paralympic Games

With men and women going for gold across 10 days of quick-paced competition, Sitting Volleyball offered plenty of thrills at London 2012.

Sitting Volleyball emerged in the Netherlands in the 1950s, a combination of Volleyball and a German game called Sitzbal. It really began to increase in popularity during the 1960s, and has since grown into one of the most fast-paced and exciting Paralympic sports. It is now played by athletes in more than 50 countries around the world.

Competition dates
Thursday 30 August -- Saturday 8 September 2012

Competition venue
ExCeL

Number of medal events
One men's and one women's competition

Number of competitors
198: 110 men and 88 women
Ten teams compete in the men's and eight teams in the women's competitions, with 11 athletes on each team (six players and five substitutes).
Each country is limited to one men's and one women's team.

Classification
In Sitting Volleyball there are two categories of classification: disabled and minimal disablility. A maximum of one minimally disabled player may be on the court for each team at any one time.

The basics
Sitting Volleyball is played by two teams of six. The object of the game is to land the ball in the opposition's half of the court. The rules of Sitting Volleyball are very similar to its Olympic counterpart, however a part of an athlete's body between the buttocks and the shoulder must be in contact with the court whenever a shot, or attempt at a shot, is made.

Each team is allowed three touches of the ball before it must cross over the net (in addition to a legal block). The key attacking move is the set and spike, in which a player feeds the ball (the set) for a teammate to hit it into the opposition's court (the spike).

The match starts with three front-row players in a line near the net, and three back-row players in a line towards the back of the court. At each serving opportunity, the players rotate one space.

Each team has the opportunity to have one libero amongst their players on court. The libero is a specialist defensive player, and may not play any attacking shots. The libero is easy to identify as their kit is a different colour to the rest of the team.

For a complete set of rules, please refer to the international federation, the World Organisation Volleyball for Disabled (WOVD).
