Origination of Volleyball (article #2)
Originally Volleyball came from humble beginnings. The game came into existence in 1895, in Holyoke, Massachusetts. William G. Morgan created the game which was originally called “Mintonettte”. The name was later changed to Volley Ball, and finally as we know it today, Volleyball. Morgan created a fun unique game for the businessmen who came to the YMCA. They wanted a game which was competitive, but less physical than basketball. The game was created by mixing a variety of elements from: Basketball, Baseball, Tennis, and Handball
THE ORIGINAL RULES OF VOLLEYBALL (1895)
The first rules, written in longhand by Mr. Morgan, contained the following basic features:
Court size was 25 x 50 feet
Height of the net was 6 feet, 6 inches
Any number of participants was allowed
Serves could be assisted across the net
A second serve was permitted (as in tennis) if the first was served out of bounds
There was no limit to the number of hits on each side of the court
Players could continuously “air dribble” the ball up to a restraining line 4 feet from the net
Any ball touching the net was considered out of bounds
Faults by the serving team, balls landing in the serving team’s court or hit out of bounds by the serving team (except for first serves) resulted in “side- out” for the serving team
Length of the game was nine “innings,” with three serves per team per inning, for three or more players on a team. If one player on a team, then one serve per side; two players on a team were thus allowed two serves per side.
Volleyball began as a fun game for men at the YMCA in Holy Yoke, MA. Today volleyball is one of the leading sports for men and women at all levels. It has continued to grow and change into a highly competitive sport played at all levels.
