    A quick Google search would have told you that it's a volleyball court.

    Thanks for your kind reply and suggestions. Before writing I have searched in the net actually. The problem is that I have found all the three possibilities. For example: https://www.google.com/search?q=voll...w=1351&bih=638 and
    https://3docean.net/item/volleyball-field/14388286;
    I have also found the term "ground".

    Even when it's beach volleyball, which is played in sand, it's still referred to as a 'court'.

    I clicked on the first link. Even though it was a search for volleyball pitch, most of the results were for volleyball court.

    Re: volleyball pitch, court or field

    The official body of volleyball, the Fédération Internationale de Volleyball, states that it is a volleyball court. Scroll down to page 12 and look at point 1.1 on this document.
