History Of Volleyball
In 1895, William G. Morgan, an instructor at the Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA) in
Holyoke, Mass., decided to blend elements of basketball, baseball, tennis, and handball to create a
game for his classes of businessmen which would demand less physical contact than basketball. He
created the game of Volleyball (at that time called, mintonette). Morgan borrowed the net from
tennis, and raised it 6 feet 6 inches above the floor, just above the average man's head.
