Matches are played in sets, which in turn have a certain number of points. The first team to reach 21 points is the winner in indoor volleyball. In the case of beach volleyball, this figure is 25. Points can be won if the ball bounces into the team area of the opposing team or an out-of-bounds ball is hit.
Also, if a member of the opposing team touches the central net or the ball is not returned over the net or caught by an opposing team member. Lastly, if there is a boundary line violation by the opposing team while serving the ball.
