How to Win Volleyball
Hit the ball perfectly
Make sure to hit the ball (serve, bump, block, and spike) at the right moment in order to have better control of the ball. Unleash a fast-moving spike and let your opponents have a lesser chance to respond.
A “Nice” text will appear when you hit the ball at the right time.
Smash the ball on blind spots
Target an open spot far from the opponents to score easily. If the opposing teams are able to respond, they may mess up their timing or be forced to shoot weak spikes.
Be careful on hitting the outside the court or else the opposing team will score instead.
Coordinate your offense
As a two-on-two team sport, you need coordinate with your teammate to win a match. Either set a ball or spike at the right time to score a point.
