Overview of Volleyball as a Sport
Volleyball is a hugely popular sport! It’s played by two teams of six, competing to score points by hitting a ball over a net and into the other team’s court. The aim is to ground the ball on their side or make them make a mistake. It’s a fast-paced game that needs teamwork, skilful technique, and smart tactics.
It isn’t just something you play at the beach – volleyball can be played inside on a hard court too! It began in the late 19th century in the United States and has since grown in popularity. It’s now an Olympic sport, which means it’s gone through many changes and advancements over the years.
A unique aspect of volleyball is its use of player rotation. Each turn, everyone takes a turn to serve. This allows each player to contribute to their team’s success from different positions on the court. This system makes sure it’s fair and gives every player a chance to show off their skills.
Did you know that the game was initially called “mintonette” when it was created by William G. Morgan in 1895? Its name was changed to volleyball because you have to volley the ball back and forth across the net.
