A ball the blockers elect not to attempt to block because it has been set too far from the net or the hitter is not under control. A “Down Ball” is hit overhand and driven over the net with topspin while the player remains standing. “Down Ball,” is usually called aloud by the defense when it becomes apparent the attacker has no chance of hitting a powerful spike.
