Volleyball Introduction


In 1885, William Morgan, the director of the Holyoke YMCA was searching for a less intense game for his older members. The game he developed combined elements from a number of different sports, had minimal equipment and could be played in a variety of settings with varying numbers of participants. Volleyball was born.
