yeahh, they have alot more padding that softball knee pads. volleyball players have to be protected while their diving onto their knees and such. softball players (mostly only the younger ones wear knee pads) dont need as much padding on their knees because although they dive and slide, it is usually not onto their knees. gym floors are also alot harder and hurt worse than the ground (i know from experience! lol)

The first difference would be the name, the second difference is the way the look.

In terms of functionality, I would not be worried about using Wrestling knee pads in volleyball, but there may be a difference when using volleyball knee bads while wrestling. Volleyball knee pads are designed to be flexible to allow a lot of movement, but you do not spend that much time on the floor as compared to wrestling.

Why do volleyball players wear knee pads?

I think that they do this to protect their knees from impact with the volleyball court. This could cause an injury to the knees, or at least bruise them up. In the volleyball game there is very much diving for the ball, kneeling to save the ball("knee save") and even if you know how to dive correctly, you are at great risk of hurting your knees. Additionally, women/girls don't want to have any bruise/ scrape on their knees, because they want to look beautifull and probably nobody thinks that these scrapes, bruises or floor burns are something pretty, interesting or sexy! I noticed, that the difference between women and men in wearing knee pads in volleyball is very great( of course more ladies wear knee pads than men).
