Volleyball is one of those fun games that you don’t have to use much persuasion to round up the players. The teams immediately show their competitive side, and when the whistle blows, the scores start totting up. Volleyball is played by two teams of six players on a court divided by a net. The object of the game is to send the ball over the net so that the opposing team cannot return the ball or prevent it from hitting the ground in their court. Each team has three hits to attempt to return the ball.
The game can be incorporated into any of our popular events. These include beach survivor, beach olympics, lawn games, family days or boeresport. In addition, it can be staged as a stand alone event. This would be best for large groups where a round robin play off will determine the winning team.
Originally called ‘Mintonette’, the game of volleyball was invented in 1895 by William G Morgan, in Holyoke, Massachusetts at a YMCA. The game is still widely played by 80 million people worldwide. Volleyball was called Mintonette because of its similarity with badminton. However, Alfred Halstead later renamed it to volleyball because the objective of the game was to volley the ball back and forth over a net.
