1. INTRODUCTION The widespread interest in sports in our culture provides a great opportunity to catch students' attention in mathematics and statistics classes. Many students, whose eyes would normally glaze over after ten minutes of algebra, will happily spend hours analyzing their favorite sport. In recent years the mathematical literature on sports (e.g. [1] and [2]) has expanded greatly and covers a broad spectrum of sports, including baseball, football, soccer, tennis, and track and field.

Volleyball, an increasingly popular sport, has a mathematically interesting scoring system. The purpose of this paper is to show students, through an analysis of volleyball scoring systems, how we can model volleyball games as Markov chains, obtaining formulas for the proportion of points won by each team in the long run. We can also calculate the exact probabilities of winning a point, a game and a match for each scoring system.

Under careful guidance of a faculty instructor,...

Volleyball Scoring Systems

~ Hellow


. Volleyball is a team sport played by two teams on a playing court divided by a net. The sport originated in the United States, and is now just achieving the type of popularity in the U.S. that it has received on a global basis, where it ranks behind only soccer among participation sports.

Today there are more than 24 million Americans who play


. There are 800 million players worldwide who play Volleyball at least once a week. The object of the game is for each team to send the ball regularly over the net to ground it on the opponent's court, and to prevent the ball from being grounded on its own court. The ball is put into play by the right back-row player who serves the ball by hitting it over the net to the opponent's court. A team is allowed to hit the ball three times (in addition to the block contact) to return it to the opponent's court. A player is not allowed to hit the ball twice...

New tactics

The sport is very finely balanced between power and speed. Hence while strength and height have become vital components of international teams, the ability of teams and coaches to devise new tactics, strategies and skills have been crucial for success at the Olympic Games.

A beach phenomenon

Volleyball was introduced to the Olympics in 1964 but the beach volleyball phenomenon arose only at the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games in Atlanta. This discipline, although still very young, has become very popular.

Current events

There is a men’s and women’s volleyball event and a men’s and women’s beach volleyball event. Volleyball takes place indoors in controlled conditions. Beach volleyball takes place outside, where the athletes have to compete with the added variables of the sand, the sun and the wind.

Competition procedure

Volleyball matches are played to the best of five sets. The first four sets are played to 25 points, with the final set being played to...

Scoring method where points can be won by the serving or receiving team.

Side Out Scoring: a format of scoring where points can be won only by the serving team.

Rally Point Scoring approved by FIVB (1999-)

Historical change in Volleyball with the Rally Point Scoring System Tokyo, 28 October 98

The 174 delegates of the 26th FIVB World Congress, representing 138 countries, have unanimously approved today in Tokyo the proposal of the FIVB Board of Administration to change the scoring system and the format of the Volleyball matches. The Rally Point Scoring system will be introduced and the matches will be played at the best of 5 sets, the first four sets to 25 points, the fifth set to 15 points, each of them with a minimum lead of 2 points. In the Rally Point Scoring system, each rally wins a point whether it is for the serving or for the receiving team...

NOTE: This cannot be considered as a complete answer, since I wasn't able to find the record for WTA matches and also some sources I found contradict each other. But I am posting at least the information I was able to find, hoping that someone might be able to find the missing info.

Open Era records

ATP matches

Adriano Panatta saved 11 match points in his match against Kim Warwick in the first round of 1976 Italian Open. He won this match and then went on to win the tournament. Several sources confirm this as the Open Era record. 1, 2, 3. 4

WTA matches

I found several mentions of Svetlana Kuznetsova defeating Virginia Ruano Pascual and saving 11 match points in Madrid 2001. 1. 2, 3.

I did not find any source confirming that this is indeed a record.

Grand Slam matches

In the open era there were 4 occurrences when a player saved 9 match points and won a match at a Grand Slam tournament.

Watching the Olympic Games this Summer I noticed that the volleyball competition has changed the scoring system from the old “sideout” system to what used to be called “quick score.” (This change may have happened a long time ago, I don’t watch much volleyball.) The traditional sideout scoring method increments the score only when the serving team wins a point. When the serving team loses the point the serve is awarded to the other team (a “sideout”) but the score is unchanged. This can lead to long drawn out games with repeated sideouts and little scoring. As a stopgap, in the old days, volleyball matches would switch to the quick score system after a certain amount of time has elapsed. In quick scoring a sideout earns a point for the team that gains the serve.

I always liked the sideout system, thinking of it as a characteristic volleyball rule that is compromised for expediency by the switch to quick score. Instinctively it seemed that the fact you could only score when...

Volleyball is a team sport in which two teams of six players are separated by a net. Each team tries to score points by grounding a ball on the other team's court under organized rules.[1] It has been a part of the official program of the Summer Olympic Games since 1964.

The complete rules are extensive. But simply, play proceeds as follows: a player on one of the teams begins a 'rally' by serving the ball (tossing or releasing it and then hitting it with a hand or arm), from behind the back boundary line of the court, over the net, and into the receiving team's court. The receiving team must not let the ball be grounded within their court. The team may touch the ball up to 3 times but individual players may not touch the ball twice consecutively. Typically, the first two touches are used to set up for an attack, an attempt to direct the ball back over the net in such a way that the serving team is unable to prevent it from being grounded in their court.

Basic Volleyball Terminology for Newbies

Volleyball Game (Set)
A volleyball game or set is played to a predetermined number of points. Games must be won by at least 2 points. For example, if a game is being played to 25 points, if a 24-24 tie occurs, the game isn t over until a team leads by 2 points.

Volleyball Match
Matches are a made up of games. Match play usually consists of competing until one team wins 2 out of 3 or 3 out of 5 games.

Playing Fault
A fault is a violation of the rules. The result of a fault is a point. Examples of playing faults are: team hits the ball 4 times without returning it back over the net, a player contacts the ball 2 consecutive times, a player touches the net when blocking or attacking, a player catches and throws the ball.



A point is the result of a rally. Points are scored in various ways - by players committing faults, ball landing in , ball landing out ,...

Rally scoring is a scoring system in volleyball in which a point is scored on every single rally, regardless of which team is serving the ball. Thus, in rally scoring, points can be scored by either the serving or receiving team. The rally scoring system was implemented in 1999.

In volleyball, a point is scored every time that the ball hits the court within the boundaries, or an error is made. The team that did not make the error, or allow the ball to hit on their side of the floor, is awarded a point, whether they served the ball or not. The team that won the point then serves for the next point.

Side Out Scoring

Prior to the implementation of the rally scoring system in 1999, the ‘side out’ scoring system was utilized. With the side out scoring system, points could only be scored by the team that was serving the ball. If the team that was not serving the ball won a rally, they would not be awarded a point. Instead, they would then get...

COLLEGE STATION, Texas – It was the kind of match that players dream of.

For freshman Molly Haggerty, the outside hitter not only led the sixth-ranked Wisconsin (7-1) volleyball team to a sweep of No. 16 Texas A&M but also set a school record for kills in the process. Haggerty had a match-high 27 kills, leading the Badgers to a 25-16, 25-17, 25-22 win over the Aggies.

"That's some pretty big offensive numbers," head coach Kelly Sheffield said of Haggerty. "She obviously had some nice swings but she had some swings that weren't really good hand contact or would just fall down off the block for a kill. She was awfully good offensively and passed almost a 2.5 (out of 3.0) tonight.

"(Haggerty) carried us offensively but I was really happy with the way we defended, especially in the backcourt. I thought we were really good defensively. Kelli (Bates) was really, really good and had some big digs on some great swings. She really frustrated their outsides. Our backcourt was...

There are two scoring methods used for volleyball. The first is known as sideout scoring, which basically means the only team that can score is the team that is serving. If the non-serving team hits the ball in the opponents' court or their opponents make an error, they earn the right to serve only. With rally scoring, either team can score regardless of who the serving team is. Games typically must be won by a minimum of two points with both scoring systems.

With rally scoring, teams score a point when the other team fails to return the ball over the net, hits the ball out of bounds, commits an infraction or makes a service error.

In sideout scoring, the serving team scores a point when the opponents fail to return the ball over the net, hit the ball out of bounds or commit an infraction. The non-serving team will earn the right to serve when the opponents fail to return the ball over the net, hit the ball out...
