Volleyball is a game that is fun for people of all ages. While most people have images in their head of freakishly tall athletes jumping out of their shoes at the net to spike a ball, the vast majority of volleyball is played by people who are more inclined to simply return the ball over the net than set it up for a bump, set and spike.

Volleyball showcases a lot of athletic talent in a quick (more…)
