When was volleyball started?

William Morgan, an instructor at Young Men's Christian Association in Massachusetts, created the sport in 1895. Morgan decided to combine elements of basketball, baseball, and tennis to create a game for his classes of businessmen who demanded a sport with less physical contact than basketball. The first volleyball net, borrowed from tennis, was only 6'6" high and a special ball was made for it in 1900. In the Philippines 1916, the offensive style of setting and hitting was first demonstrated. Soon after that it became clear that rules must be made for tournament play so the USVBA (United States Volleyball Association now USA Volleyball) was formed in 1928. Today there are more than 800 million volleyball players worldwide, 46 million of them in the U.S.

Who invented the first volleyball game?

It was invented in 1895 by a YMCA teacher, William G Morgan, in Massachusetts, USA. With the same intention as basketball invented there a llittle earlier, he aspired a spectacular, physically demanding, non-violent team sport for the indoor sport season. He was also inspired by handball, baseball and tennis. Initially it was called Mintonette, but renamed to Volleyball in 1896. It has spawned many varieties, like Beach Volleyball from California, USA and Footvolley from Brazil, especially for outdoor playing. Kidsvolley and Volley 2000, are adapted to young players, allowing a ground bounce, very popular in Northern Europe. In the Netherlands "sitting volleyball" was created for disabled persons. The modern Volleyball rules have evolved around the world, especially in 1900-1930, with the number of players, spiking and scoring. Faustball has many similarities with volleyball, and was known in Europe already in the 16th century.
