Volleyball History

The History and Origin of Volleyball Game. Every great thing comes with a great story, it also goes for some of the greatest sports in the world like football, basketball and volleyball. Volleyball history goes way back to the late 19th century when William G. Morgan, a physical education director of YMCA in Massachusetts invented this sport as an alternative for older people who could not keep up with some fast paced sports like basketball or baseball. So in its early days, volleyball was very much different than the sport we see today played in the Olympic, not a lot of jumping, no spiking, blocking or jump serve like we can see in a volleyball match today.
