Volleyball has an interesting past. It was invented in 1895 by William G. Morgan as a way for businessmen to play an indoor sport that wasn’t as vigorous as basketball. Now volleyball has evolved into an indoor and outdoor sport, played in large and small teams by both men and women. Like many influencers interested in sharing their passions, sports and hobbies, volleyball influencers have taken to social media to share their love for the sport.
