The first game of volleyball
Volleyball first started life as a game called ‘Mintonette’ over 124 years ago. It was developed to be an indoor sport that was not as rough as basketball for members of the YMCA (Young Men’s Christian Association). Noting the volleying nature of the game, it soon became known as volleyball. Six years later and Canada became the first country to adopt the sport outside of the United States. In1947, the Fédération Internationale de Volleyball (FIVB) was established. The first World Championships of the sport took place in 1949 for men and 1952 for women. Volleyball has been part of the Games in summer since 1964. You can buy or sell Olympic game tickets here on StubHub.
