    Volleyball and the YMCA

    Did you know that volleyball was invented at the YMCA?

    In, 1895, in Holyoke, Massachusetts, William G. Morgan, a YMCA physical education director, created a new game called Mintonette as a pastime to be played indoors and by any number of players.

    This game became volleyball, which we know and love today.  Volleyball was designed to be an indoor sport, less rough than basketball (for older members of the YMCA), while still requiring athletic effort.
