Volleyball!


Volleyball has become a very popular sport. The game was in-vented in 1895 by William G. Morgan. He was a teacher at a YMCA in Holyoke, Massachusetts. He combined parts of other sports like tennis, baseball, basketball and handball to create a new game played indoors. Morgan borrowed the net from tennis and raised it six and a half feet above the floor. It was different then compared to what it is today. At first, you could have as many players as you wanted on a team. There were nine innings per game with three outs per inning. There was also no limit on the number of hits of the ball on each side of the court.
