Volleyball

Volleyball became part of the Olympic program at the 1964 Tokyo Games.

The sport is played by two teams of six on a 18×9-meter court separated by a net in the middle. One team sends the ball over the net and the other team can touch the ball up to three times before they must send it back to their opponent’s side of the net. Teams are awarded a point when the ball touches the ground on the opponent’s side of the court or outside the court after being blocked. Volleyball will run from July 24 to Aug. 8.

Venue and access information

Volleyball will take place in Ariake Arena, a newly constructed facility becoming a new sporting and cultural center capable of having 15,000 people. The center is eight minutes from both Ariake-tennis-no-mori Station and Shin-toyosu Station on the Yurikamome Line.
