Opposite Hitter The opposite hitter is the player who most often scores the most points in the team. Opposite hitters don’t have the passing responsibilities. They stand behind the passers on the rotation while libero and outside hitters pass the ball and place themselves to the left front, right front or right back playing position.
The opposite plays at the net on the right side of the court. The opposite is responsible for blocking the opponent's outside hitter and also helps out with blocking their middle if appropriate. If the middle is a significant threat, the opposite may cheat in to the court a little to help out blocking.
Some other things: - Oppo's are the next choice to set the ball when the setter takes the first touch and the libero can't make it. - Many coaches tend to favor left handed oppo's because they can contact the ball faster than right handers (vice-versa for outsides)
The left-wing spiker is commonly known as the outside hitter while the right-wing spiker is called the opposite hitter. In a volleyball game, outside hitters are primarily responsible for attacks while the opposite hitters help with blocking the opposing team’s outside hitter and sometimes being a backup setter if needed.

The Mids had a very balanced offense in the match as a middle hitter, outside hitter and opposite hitter each totaled at least 10 kills in the match. Outside hitter Cami Herman (Sr., Brookfield, Wis.) led the way with 12 kills, middle hitter Maggie Bodman (So., Northbrook, Ill.) had 11 kills and opposite hitter Stowell recorded 10 kills.
The main reason for this is because it would be really awkward for the outside hitter and swap seamlessly as they are on complete opposite sides of the court to where they would normally play. This means for this rotation only the outside player would hit through position 2 and the right sided hitter would hit through position 4.
