Best Answer

Volleyball was first created by William Morgan in 1895. It was first called "mintonette" and was latter re-named Volleyball because of the 'volleying' that occurred during the game.

William Morgan was studying in the field of Physical Education and created volleyball during his college studies at Spring field college in Massachusetts.

Morgan was working with the YMCA and created Volleyball to allow the older members to have a game to play that was less vigorous then Basketball, but that still required athletic skill.
