Remember that volleyball scene in Top Gun? The ladies loved it the guys felt awkward watching it, but now is your chance to make like Goose and Maverick for game after game of this relatively forgotten but hugely awesome sport. Shirts: optional. Oil: optional. Straight out competitiveness and killer spike shots? Absolutely necessary.
Volleyball is a recognised Olympic team sport and the idea is for each team to score points against another by grounding a ball on the other team's court. There are various techniques but I'm not going to bore you with those as I have something a little more interesting.
On 9th February 1895 in Massachusetts (USA), William G Morgan, a YMCA physical education director, created a new game called Mintonette (as volleyball was then known). It was based on tennis and handball. Believe it or not basketball was invented just ten miles away only four years before.
"Not an obvious choice for a stag weekend but great fun"
Volleyball is a very fast paced, energetic game which has a much better looking sister called beach volleyball. Now there's a great spectator sport if ever I saw one.
Not an obvious choice for a stag weekend but great fun.
