The winning team in a volleyball game is the first to reach 25 points with a winning margin of at least two points. In match play, the victors have to win three out of five games to win the match. The serving team gets the point if the defensive teams hits the ball out of bounds or incurs a violation. The defensive team gets a point if the server cannot get the ball over the net or the offensive team hits the ball out of bounds.
When Samuele Papi was young, he often went to the sports arena in Falconara, a small citiy on the Adriatic sea which is not far from Ancona, middle Italy. At that time, Zorzi and Renan and other champions were the idols he looked up to. He played volleyball from the early morning until the afternoon and assisted as ball retriever during A-1 matches. Since Samuele is not very tall, nobody ever imagined him becoming a world star one day. But a few years later, at the age of 21, Julio Velasco brought him to the senior’s national team, which was shortly after he had left the team of Falconara from the second Italian league.
