History Volleyball was invented in 1895 in Holyoke, Massachusetts. It actually began as a game called Mintonette. William G. Morgan, a physical education director at the local YMCA, created the indoor game, incorporating aspects of handball and tennis. The intention was to invent an indoor sport somewhat similar to basketball; which could be enjoyed by older, less athletic people. While basketball included a great deal of running, Mintonette required players to basically stand in one place. Both men’s and women’s volleyball is included in today’s summer Olympic games. A variation of the game grew popular mid-way through the 20th century. Beach volleyball, played on sand with fewer players, was added to the Olympic Games in 1996, but had been played since 1930.
