Another scheme is that no matter what position opponent attacks, it is 3rd position of their side that blocks net.
▼Defensive formation under double block
When opponent's offensive power is strong and line changes a lot, one block is not enough to block opponent's attack. At this time, a double block defensive scheme should be adopted.
In a double block, players in front row and one of their own players or another player join grid to form a double block.
