How to Calculate Volleyball Passing Percentage?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines the steps and information needed to calculate Volleyball Passing Percentage.

First, determine the total number of good passes. For this example, the number of good passes is 500.

Next, determine the number of playable passes. In this case, the number of playable passes is 700.

Next, determine the number of passing errors. For this example, the number of passing errors is 300.

Finally, calculate the volleyball passing percentage using the formula above:

PP = (PG + PP) / (TA) *100

PP = (500 + 700) / (500+700+300) *100

PP = 80%
