Volleyball Before

Before, there weren't many rules in volleyball.

Volleyball used to be a combination of the games basketball, baseball, handball, and tennis.

The number of players on each side of the net varied.

The net was 6 ft. and 6 in. high

The game was 9 innings long, like baseball.

Each team served 3 times each inning, and only the serving team could score points in the game.

The ball could be hit several times before passig it over the net.

The object of the game was to keep the ball in play as it passed over the net.


The Court
How the Court is Organized
Positions on the Court
There are many different positions on the court that create the whole team. All of these positions are very important.
3 forwards: stand infront of the net or on the attack line.
3 back row players (a.k.a defenders)
libero: new position that was designated at the 2000 Summer Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia. Libero is a defensive specialist that may be substituted anywhere in the back row.
Wears a different color from the rest of the team to be easily identified.
By: Claire Bae
Volleyball, originally called Mintonette, was invented in 1895 by William G. Morgan in Holoyke, Massachusetts.

Morgan was in charge of designing physical programs of all ages a the YMCA. He created volleyball to be enjoyed by more older and mature players

Morgan got the idea of this game from the game of tennis. He took away the rackets, made the net higher, and asked the Spalding Manufacturing Company to create a ball fit for the game of volleyball.
Rectangular in shape (29 ft. 6 in wide, and 59 ft long.)
Divided by 3 lines:
centerline (a.k.a attack line): directly under net.
one line on each half of court that is parallel to the net, 10 ft. away from it.
end line: line that server stands behind to serve the ball.
In addition to the 3 main lines, there are also sidelines within the court to indicate the boundaries.
Net is set up along the width of the court, and divides the court in half.
Net is 32.8 ft long, and 3.3 ft wide. Poles hold up the net, which also has an antenna that extends over the height of the net to create a foul line marker
Server: starts the game/rally.
No specific player for the server. Everyone in the team takes turns on being the server.
