Sitting volleyball has grown to be one of the more popular Paralympic sports due to the fast and exciting action. At club level, the game offers both disabled and non-disabled players the opportunity to compete both with and against each other.

A brief overview of the game includes:
– Sitting Volleyball is played on a 10 x 6 metre court
– The game is played with a 0.8 meter-wide net set to a height of 1.15 meters for men and 1.05 meters for women
– When hitting or attacking the ball, the player must have one “buttock” or an extension of the torso still in contact with the floor.
