Since the end of World War II, sports have become an important element in modern life. More than simply providing pleasure, sports also improve an individual’s physical and mental health. In fact, Baron de Coubertin, father of the modern Olympics, found that nations that excelled in sports excelled in other areas as well. Today, higher incomes, improvements in working conditions, and better transportation allow people more time, money, and mobility for recreation, including sports.
 
Created in 1895 by William Morgan, a YMCA physical education instructor, volleyball was originally designed for businessmen who found the game of basketball too strenuous. First called mintonette, the name was changed when a college professor, noting the volleying nature of the game, suggested calling it volleyball. Immediately popular, it was soon being played in schools, industrial leagues, the armed forces, and other organizations. During World War I and II the sport spread to Europe, Japan, and Korea.
 
Today, the sport of volleyball is a far cry from the game invented by William Morgan. Although the fun still remains, it has become an intense and challenging sport requiring agility and speed.
