Ever Play Volleyball Like This?

I went to play volleyball on open gym night at church just to have some fun and get some exercise. I haven’t played for about 3-4 years, but enjoyed it. The only thing that seemed strange to me was the scoring. I always thought the game was to 15, and you had to win by two, but only the team serving scored points. It seems there is another scoring system where both teams can score whether they are serving or not and the game is to 25. The last team to hit the ball over the net gets the point, whether they served it or not. I believe they called it “rolling” scoring.

I was on the losing side both games, but they were close. My arms were pretty red and although others played more, I didn't want to be out that late. It was fun though. Afterward, I thought if I should even play because after my lumpectomy in fall of 2009, my surgeon told me to be very careful not to bump my arm or get any bites or scratches on it.  I wonder how long I have to watch that because he also told me not to let anyone take my blood pressure or give me a shot on my right arm ever!  Hmm.  I better check with him before I play again.

Have you ever played this way?  You're invited to join us on Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. at Parma Heights Baptist Church next to ParmaTown Mall (across from Walgreens) if you live in the area.

Volleyball sounds like fun, but I can't jump very high.

Have a great day.

pawhugs, Max

I haven't heard of that way of scoring either. I'm not sure my arms could hold out for that many points! I must be a wimp because that ball smacking on my arms hurts! :)
