Volleyball is a popular sport that is played professionally, as well as in recreational leagues, on school teams, in backyards, sandlots, or beaches.  The game of volleyball can be enjoyed virtually anywhere a net can be set up, including over a swimming pool.   A typical volleyball game uses six players on each side.  The aim is to deliver the ball over the net and "ground" it (have it touch the ground) on the opposing side while preventing the ball from touching the ground on their side.


Volleyball was developed by William G. Morgan , a physical fitness instructor at the YMCA in Holyoke, Massachusetts. His goal was to invent a game for all ages that was not as physically taxing as basketball.


T he regulation volleyball court is a rectangle, 18 meters by 9 meters divided into two equal squares by the center line. Above the center line spans a taut horizontal net that is 2.43 meters above the court. The net is 9.5 meters long, and 1 meter deep. The mesh features squares that are 10 centimeters wide. The volleyball is 65-67 centimeters in circumference and 250-260 grams in weight. The outside is leather, over a bladder of rubber or similar material. It must be of one color and cannot have any laces . Volleyball uniforms consist of a vest or jersey, shorts, kneepads, and rubber or leather shoes without heels. Team members wear the same color and may play in numbered track suits during cold weather.


Rules When volleyball was first  invented , it was much different from the game today. You could have as many players as you wanted on each team. There were  nine innings  per game, with three outs per innning . There was also  no limit  on the number of hits of the ball on each side of the court. Here are the  basic rules  of volleyball today . 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 ball is put in play by a serve that is hit by the server over the net to the opponent. When the receiving team wins a volley, it gains the right to serve, and the players rotate one position clockwise. When the serving team wins a volley, it wins a point and the right to continue serving. The ball must clear the net on a serve. A game is played to 21 points or some other agreed upon number. The team that wins the best two out of three games wins the match.
