Volleyball was invented by William Morgan in 1896 in Holyoke, Mass. and was originally called "mintonette".

They both worked for the YMCA.


the first game of volleyball was played at what college? the first world Czechoslovakia in what year? i really need 2 know

The game of volleyball was invented by William G. Morgan in 1895 at a YMCA in Holyoke, Massachusetts, just up the road from Springfield, where five years earlier, the game of basketball was invented at another YMCA.

The first country outside the United States to adopt volleyball was Canada in 1900. An international federation, the Fédération Internationale de Volleyball (FIVB), was founded in 1947, and the first World Championships were held in 1949 for men and 1952 for women. The sport is now popular in Brazil, in Europe (where especially Italy, the Netherlands and countries from Eastern Europe have been major forces since the late 1980s), in Russia, and in other countries including China and the rest of Asia, as well in as the United States.

Beach volleyball, a variation of the game played on sand and with only two players per team, became a FIVB-endorsed variation in 1987 and was added to the Olympic program at the 1996 Summer Olympics.

Are you talking about club volleyball or volleyball like in your school.

School volleyball starts around the same time school does so you will probably be told when the sign ups are but you can always call the school and ask but it starts around the same time school does if you want to tryout.

Club volleyball which is for better volleyball players is right now! The tryouts are around the end of November or the beginning of december so you missed club tryouts for volleyball.

I can not give you the exact dates but this will help a little bit.Here is the Ohio club volleyball website. Just call your school around the end of summer vacation and ask when your school tryouts are!
