Only the serving side scores points. The ball is served by hitting it with an arm or a hand. The serve must pass over the net into the receiving team’s court. The serving team scores a point each time the ball touches the receiving team’s floor, and also when a member of the receiving team hits the ball out-of-bounds or commits a foul. The first team to score 15 points and has at least a 2-point advantage over the other, wins the game.
