Nothing beats being with all your friends on the beach playing volleyball! I grew up watching a high level of volleyball and have always wanted to have that control and to make it look so easy like the great players do. That is why I am so motivated to improve.
I got into volleyball for the fitness, and I love it. Now I play for the fun and because of the friends I have made. Indoor is fun, but for me, beach is even better.
I started as a basket-baller; I saw how high the beach volley-ballers could jump and wanted to do the same... and hammer a ball at the opposition!
I keep playing because the people involved are all great fun to be around. No one takes themselves too seriously. I also enjoy entering tournaments and want to keep fit enough to perform well.
Playing volleyball is fun and very good to keep my fitness. My legs are so much stronger and so are my shoulders. My partner on the beach and with my team mates when I play indoor, there is great motivation.
I play volleyball because its a great competitive team sport. Its a fast paced game and you need a high degree of skill to play at higher levels. Great players make it look easy, but skills are developed with time and consistent effort. Of course, another bonus to volleyball is that the road trips for tournaments are so much fun.
Volleyball is one of the only non-contact team sports you can play
Volleyball is a sport played by two teams on a playing court divided by a net. There are different versions available for specific circumstances in order to offer the versatility of the game to everyone. The object of the game is to send the ball over the net in order to ground it on the opponent's court, and to prevent the same effort by the opponent. The team has three hits for returning the ball (in addition to the block contact).
The ball is put in play with a service: hit by the server over the net to the opponents. The rally continues until the ball is grounded on the playing court, goes "out" or a team fails to return it properly. In Volleyball, the team winning a rally scores a point (Rally Point System). When the receiving team wins a rally, it gains a point and the right to serve, and its players rotate one position clockwise.
