The game of volleyball, originally called “mintonette,” was invented in 1895 by William G. Morgan after the invention of basketball only four years before. Morgan, a graduate of the Springfield College of the YMCA, designed the game to be a combination of basketball, baseball, tennis, and handball.
The first volleyball net, borrowed from tennis, was only 6’6″ high (though you need to remember that the average American was shorter in the nineteenth century).
The offensive style of setting and spiking was first demonstrated in the Philippines in 1916. Over the years that followed, it became clear that standard rules were needed for tournament play, and thus the USVBA (United States Volleyball Association) was formed in 1928.
Modern Volleyball has many different forms of play. Here at Work Out West we are going to be playing in “quads”, “triples” and “doubles”. We will have Women’s and Coed teams for all 3. We will also have a Men’s team division for our doubles!
We will follow the modern rules of volleyball with scoring being best of 3 to 15.
Work Out West wants this to be a fun time for all and we will have refreshments available through out the games.
We are hoping to make this an annual event so come out and show your support and lets make this an amazing summer!
