Volleyball Overview and Volleyball Tickets

The game of volleyball, originally called “mintonette”, was invented in 1895 by William G. Morgan. Volleyball is a vastly popular sport played by men and women alike. Volleyball is an enjoyable activity for the beach or the park.  Volleyball is a team sport in which two teams of six players, with up to six substitutes allowed in a squad are separated by a net. Each team tries to score points by grounding a ball on the other team's court under organized rules. 

The complete rules are extensive. a team is chosen to serve by coin toss. A player from the serving team throws the ball into the air and attempts to hit the ball so it passes over the net on a course such that it will land in the opposing team's court. The opposing team must use a combination of no more than three contacts with the volleyball to return the ball to the opponent's side of the net.The receiving team must not let the ball be grounded within their court. They may touch the ball as many as three times. Each player is only allowed to touch the ball once. The object of the game is to force the ball down onto to the floor of the opponents court, or to put them under so much pressure that they are unable to return the ball.

In volleyball, if the ball does not go back over the net, the opposition win a point. After each time a team wins the ball back from the opposition each player rotates one position clockwise. This rotation is a special feature of the game and it means that all players must play both in the front line and the back line. When the ball contacts the floor within the court boundaries or an error is made, the team that did not make the error is awarded a point, whether they served the ball or not. If the ball hits the line, the ball is counted as in. The team that won the point serves for the next point. If the team that won the point served in the previous point, the same player serves again. If the team that won the point did not serve the previous point, the players of the team rotate their position on the court in a clockwise manner. The game continues until  A team wins a set by scoring 25 points with a two point lead and wins the match by winning three sets.

The first official ball used in volleyball is disputed; some sources say that Spalding created the first official ball in 1896, while others claim it was created in 1900. The rules evolved over time: in the Philippines by 1916, the skill and power of the set and spike had been introduced, and four years later a "three hits" rule and a rule against hitting from the back row were established. In 1917, the game was changed from 21 to 15 points. In 1919, about 16,000 volleyballs were distributed by the American Expeditionary Forces to their troops and allies, which sparked the growth of volleyball in new countries.

The first country outside the United States to adopt volleyball was Canada in 1900. An international federation, the Federation Internationale de Volleyball (FIVB), was founded in 1947 and the first World Championships were held in 1949 for men and 1952 for women. The sport is now popular in Brazil, in Europe, in Russia and in other countries including China and the rest of Asia, as well as in the United States.

Volleyball was become part of modern Olympic Games in 1924. Olympic Volleyball match will be held from Saturday 28th July to Sunday 12th August at Earls Court at London Olympic Games.
