Vallenis is a mix between two popular sports- tennis and volleyball. It was first played in Clearwater, Florida and has since spread all over the globe because of its ability to be played in almost any environment.
Step 1: Basic Rules and Playing Field
Vallenis is played with a volleyball and can be played on most any surface. The difference between volleyball and Vallenis is that the ball can bounce once on the ground before being played by the player. The playing field is also much larger and can be played of the walls in a walled arena. This allows a vastly expanded form of volleyball.
Vallenis can be played on the beach, but must be hard sand in order to acchieve appropriate bounce.
Step 2: How to Get a Point
Points are awarded when a player hits the ball to the opponent's side and it bounces twice without being played. This means that you can gain a point by having two bounces in a row or by having one bounce and then later on, by fault, the second bounce occurs within the opponents side.
- a point is also awarded to the opposite team when a player touches the ball with his foot. This is known as a foot fall.
-Holding or throwing the ball is a penalty that results in a point for the opposite team.
- opposite teams gets a point when 30 second possession clock runs out for the team with possession
Step 3: Basic Rules to Sets or Volleys
The ball must be served from the back ( exactly like regular volleyball).
- the ball can be hit with one or two hands while in play
- the ball can be bumped, set, or spiked like in normal volleyball.
- there is a clock for each possession (like in basketball) which is 30 seconds per possession.
