Sitting Volleyball

Sitting volleyball has already been an established discipline at the Invictus Games since 2014. It is one of the most successful and most popular competitive and recreational sports of the sporting event. Sitting volleyball can be played together by athletes with and without impairments. A special feature is that the tournament can also be played as a mixed-gender event. There is no minimum requirement for the number of women and men on the teams. The game is played by two teams of six.

The aim of the game is for players to send the ball over the net and land it in the other team’s court, and to prevent the opponent from reaching the same goal. A team can use a maximum of three passes and one pass per player for returning the ball to the other team’s court. In sitting volleyball, the team winning a rally always scores a point. If the receiving team wins the rally, it also gains the right to serve, and its players rotate one position clockwise.
