     William Morgan created volleyball in 1895 at the Holyoke, Massachusetts, YMCA (Young Men's Christian Association) where he assisted as Director of Physical Education. Morgan initially called his new game of Volleyball, Mintonette. The title Volleyball came about after a demonstration game of the games, when a spectator commented that the game engaged much "volleying" and game was renamed Volleyball. William Morgan was born in the state of New York and revised at Springfield College, Massachusetts. Ironically at Springfield, Morgan contacted James Naismith who created basketball in 1891.
    Morgan was inspired by Naismith's game of basketball conceived for junior scholars to create a game apt for the older constituents of the YMCA. William Morgan's cornerstone for the new game of Volleyball was the then well liked and alike German game of Faustball and a couple of other sports including: tennis (the net), basketball, baseball and handball. The first volleyball snare, scrounged from tennis, was only 6’6″ high though you require recalling that the mean American was shorter in the 19th century. The attack method of setting and spiking was first illustrated in the Philippines in 1916.
    Over the years that pursued, it became clear that benchmark directions were required for tournament play, and therefore the United States Volleyball Association was formed in 1928. Two years subsequent, the first 2-man sandy seashore volleyball game was performed, though the expert edge of the games did not appear until much later. Not amazingly, the first sandy seashore volleyball association emerged in California in 1965.
