The Sport: William Morgan invented volleyball in 1895 at the Holyoke, Massachusetts, YMCA where he served as Director of Physical Education. Morgan originally called his new game of Volleyball, Mintonette. The name Volleyball came about after a demonstration of the sport, when a spectator commented that the game involved much "volleying" and it was renamed Volleyball.Today, there are 800 million players worldwide who play Volleyball at least once a week.
The Challenge: This Tournament will bring your team together like no other. Watch in amazement as your boss 'Barrel Rolls' the PA 'Pancakes' and your colleagues 'Chicken Wing'
