Indoor Volleyball Net

What're the characteristics of the indoor volleyball net?

The indoor volleyball net is between two vertical poles that are connected to each other by fibers woven in a grid like 40-inch wide structure which separates two opposing teams during a volleyball match.


The net divides one half of a full court from the other and it's what

players serve, block or hit over for their team to earn a sideout

or a point.


The length of a net should be at least 30 feet and at maximum 31 feet,

6 inches long.


Definition of an Indoor Volleyball Net


One of the best definitions I know about a "net" reads like this:


"A (volleyball) net in this case is not a solid fabric but a woven structure

that can be seen through and blocks the passage of large items, while

simultaneously allowing the passage of small items, particles or fluids. 


Of course in our case we are talking about the volleyball net separating

two opposing teams from each other.


The net creates a vertical boundary in the middle of the court, that

extends above the centerline all the way up to the ceiling.  



Like other net sports, volleyball players are required to contact the ball

so that it stays in play while it travels back and forth over the net. 


Unlike some other net sports, if the ball contacts the indoor net

it can still be kept in play in order to score a point or register a sideout. 


Its quite common, and legal, to use a net sleeve on the top of the

net. 


This space on the net sleeve, usually 4 inches wide can be sold 

or used by event marketers as advertising space available for

sponsorship purposes. 


For example on the net sleeve below the Wilson Ball Company name

has been used and will strategically appear in any volleyball court

photography taken during this match.


Nice free advertising, right?


Indoor Volleyball Net Height


For those who use the metric system, that's 2.43 meters. 


  • The indoor net height for women in the traditional six on six game is officially 7 feet four 4 1/8 inches. 

In meters that reads, 2.24m. 


  • For nine person volleyball, played dominantly in Asian cultures and communities the court is larger and the indoor net height, is lower at 243 cm.



  • For Sitting volleyball In the men's sitting competition, the  official net height is 1.15m while for the women it's 1.05 meters which is approximately three and a half feet.  
  • In Coed volleyball and men's volleyball both have the indoor net height and dimensions are the same at 7 feet 11 5/8 inches. 
  • For Coed Reverse the official net height  is the same as the women's indoor net height, which 7 feet 4 1/8 inches. 


How to measure the indoor net height correctly


The height of the net is measured from the center of the playing court.


Over the two sidelines, the net height has to be exactly the same and

"can't exceed the official height by more than 2 cm (3/4").
