Volleyball Spike Quotes With Slang Terms Make The Got Balls Tees Funny

These 6 volleyball spike quotes describe how to hit a volleyball with hard attacks using slang volleyball terms like the kill, tool, swipe, thump and down ball.



kill

Everyone knows that spiking the ball aggressively hard with a powerful armswing so it hits the floor before any opposing team player can dig it and make it a playable ball... is a way to score a point for your team.

In the words used to describe volleyball actions by hitters and attackers on the stat sheets .. this is called a kill.




Volleyball Spike Quotes:
Swipe - When you wipe your balls on someone else's hands


  • swipe
  • wipe
  • tool

The swipe, wipe and the tool are very similar concepts.

If your setter sets you a trap set which is a ball that falls too far inside the court or too close to the net and you need an option in order to score a point, your last option is to wipe the ball or swipe the ball against the blocker's hands so that the ball touches them last before it lands out of bounds.   

If you hear someone say to "tool" the block its also the same concept but just another slang word used to describe the same hitter attempt to score a point using the blocker's hands or arms as a 'tool' against them by 'wiping' or 'swiping' the ball against their "pressed" arms to wipe the ball off of  before the ball bounces out without anyone getting to it.

down ball

Usually when you spike a ball you contact the ball after launching yourself in the air with a three or four step spike approach.

When you hit the ball while standing on the ground without taking a spike approach the attack is called a "down ball" because you are hitting the ball without taking a spike approach.  

You can score a point by hitting a strong enough down ball to an open space on the opposing team's court.

Volleyball Spike Quotes:
Thump - When you hit your balls so hard they bounce in the air


thump

When a hitter 'thumps" a ball its a way of saying that they hit a ball extremely hard, "Man she thumped that ball!"

A 'thump' is a slang volleyball term for a very hard hit that usually hits the floor and then bounces high into the air quite often seen in warmups.
