[2015] Kiarra Gilbreath: Volleyball

A team can touch the ball three times on its side of the net. The usual pattern is a dig (an underarm pass made with the forearms), a set (an overhead pass made with the hands) and a spike (the overhead attacking shot), which passes the ball to the other side of the net and they would follow the same pattern. The ball is served into play. Teams can also try to block the opponent's spike as it crosses the net, but you may not hold the ball or let the ball touch your side of the court, if that happens it would count as a point for the other team.

On February 9, 1895, in Holyoke, Massachusetts (USA), William G. Morgan, a YMCA physical education director, created a new game called Mintonette as a pastime to be played (preferably) indoors and by any number of players. The game took some of its characteristics from tennis and handball.

Some famous athletes are Rachel Anne Daquis, Flo Hyman, Katrin Holtwick, and Nicolas Uriarte.
