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.
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.
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?
For those who use the metric system, that's 2.43 meters.
In meters that reads, 2.24m.

I share alot of individual, partner and easy-to-do volleyball serving drills we do in class with my followers.
Many of these volleyball practice drills you can do at home by yourself or try at your next practice with your teammates.
If you're a B team or JV player trying to make varsity next year...your goal should be to complete 1000 reps a day of at least three of the basic skills on your own...volleyball passing, serving and setting should be at the top of the list.
