    Definitely game. The event is called a match. Each set of 25 is called a game.

    My instinct is to go with "game" to avoid confusion with what a setter does. But the small amount of research I've done seems to indicate "set" is the more proper term.

    No, set is not correct.

    I covered college volleyball and HS level stuff when I was a reporter. I now work with a former college player, and I've never heard anyone refer to it as a set. In tennis, yea, but not in volleyball.

    As discussed earlier in the thread, nope. Each one is a game and the whole thing is a match.


    About halfway down on that link is a sample lineup card, which has a blank for which game it is.

    I think this is one of those cases in which the people reading the story, i.e. the subjects of the story, will know what you're talking about.
