Hard-Driven Ball

What is Hard-Driven Ball?

Hard-Driven Ball meaning any spiked ball hit from above or even with the height of the net may be handled with a double hit by any part of the body, so long as the hit is the first attempt to play the ball. A spiked ball touching the net does not disqualify a ball from being ruled hard-driven.
