History of Volleyball

If you thought that the advent of this game started with the volleyball that we know of today, you are mistaken.

Today, a volleyball consists of 18 rectangular panels made from synthetic or genuine leather. These panels are arranged in six identical sections of three panels, which are wrapped around a bladder. Well, if you have played a game of volleyball you would know that this game requires you to jump quite a lot. There’s an interesting fact here - according to statistics, most volleyball players jump at least a good 300 times while playing the game.
