Full Answer

In volleyball, there are several different types of scoring, with games typically ending when a team reaches either 15 or 25 points. Matches are determined by the winner of the majority of the games, either best two out of three or best three out of five. In side out scoring, only the team serving the ball can win the point; if the serving team fails to return the ball or returns it out of bounds, no point is given, and the other team gets to serve. In rally scoring, either the serving or returning team can win the point. A team wins a volleyball game by being the first to score the target number of points. The volleyball match is won by winning the majority of the games.

    How does a round robin tournament work?

    A:

    In a round robin tournament, each team in the tournament plays every other team. It is perhaps the fairest of tournaments since it gives all contestants the same opportunities and prevents one bad game from eliminating a team from the competition. It sometimes lacks the excitement of top-seeded teams playing for the championship, though some do have the top two teams play at the end.
