Video Transcript: "ADDISON MUSSER: "Hey, my name is Addison, from Captain Bill's. I'm going to teach you, how to set up a volleyball court. Setting up a volleyball court, you're going to need a flat surface, you're going to need a big flat surface. The dimensions of the court are 30 by 60. So if you want to have a good area to play in, you're going to need about 10 feet on each side of the lines. So if it's 30 by 60 for the court, you're going to need about a 40 by 70 area to play. So you want to set up the lines first, once you set up the lines, you want to set up the net. Now depending on who I was playing, there's different heights of the net. So if men are playing, the height of the net is, 7 feet 11 inches. If woman or kids are playing on the volleyball court, you want the net to be at a woman's height, which is 7 feet 4 inches. Make sure the volleyball court lines are in a rectangle, and that the net is centered evenly over the court, to where it's 30 feet on one side and 30 feet on the other side, with a width of 30 on both sides. And that is how you set up a volleyball court."
