What’s it all about?
Volleyball is a game for 2 teams, usually of 6 players, separated by a net. Each team tries to score points by grounding a ball on the other team’s court.
It doesn’t matter how old you are, how fit you are or whether you’re able bodied or disabled. Volleyball is loads of fun and a very social game. It’s the only hi-energy, zero body contact, mixed team sport you can play indoors and outdoors – whatever your ability.
As a sport, volleyball requires skill, fitness, strategic thinking and the desire to play as part of a team, but whatever level you play at, volleyball can enhance your life, improving fitness and coordination.
Sitting Volleyball is another version of Volleyball that has been adapted to allow anyone to participate including those with a disability.
You can get a casual game going almost anywhere, be it the park, the beach, your back garden, university or even a swimming pool; all that is needed is a net and a ball. For more regulated play, clubs throughout the UK run training sessions and leagues for players of all abilities.
