In the year 1916 the height of the net was set to 8 ft. Today the net is 7 ft 4-1/8 for the women's games and the men's net is set at 7 ft 11-5/8 inch. Changes to the game since it was invented
Part 2 The ball- The volleyball has changed very much since it was invented. The ball first started out as a Basketball. It was way to heavy and to hard so it was swapped out for a soccer ball. A company by the name of A.G Spalding and Bros created the first volleyball in 1896. The ball has not changed much since the 1900's until now, Now the ball will fly better, making it easier to return which makes the rallies last longer, making the sport more interesting. Changes to the game since it was invented
Part 3 The Players- Before the rules were made to how many people could play on a volleyball court, there could be as many players on the court as you could fit. In 1916, a rule was made that there could only be 6 players on the court. When beach volleyball started, there was a rule that 6 players could play on the court but that was soon changed to 2 players. Changes to the game since it was invented
Part 4 Scoring- When Volleyball was first invented, games were originally played to 15 points but today rally scoring is used. Rally scoring is a game that is played to 25 and if there is a tie you have to win by 2 points. In rally scoring, you can also earn a point when the serve isn't yours, but it used to have to be your serve in order to win the point. In 1992 it was necessary for a team to win by 2 points if tied at 14. Changes to the game since it was invented
