Mini-volleyball is a short story about invention.


The history of mini-volleyball is closely connected with volleyball. It may have appeared quite spontaneously, but we can only guess where and when it actually first appeared. Mini-volleyball appeared in the early sixties of the 20th century. The homeland of mini-volleyball is considered to be the Japanese town of Taiki, where mini-volleyball was first practiced as an independent sport. At the same time, the father of the basics of mini-volleyball is Hiroshi Toyoda. The International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) recognized mini-volleyball in 1971, when a mini-volleyball subcommittee was established within the FIVB coaching committee. Uniform rules of the game were approved in 1972, and the first mini-volleyball conference among 19 participating countries was held in Sweden in 1975.
Mini-volleyball is a game for children aged 9 to 12. It is very common. included in the school curriculum of many countries. There are two levels: mini-4 and mini-3. In both teams fighting for the victory play 3 or 4 players and plus 2 more substitutes. Boys and girls can take part in the game at the same time. The game in the game lasts up to 15 points. To win a match you need to win 2 games and often the game of mini-volleyball takes time.
Differences between mini-volleyball and volleyball:

If you compare two balls, you can see that one is a reduced version of the other - or vice versa. The ball used for mini-volleyball also differs in its feel from the classic one. This is due to the fact that teenagers play mini volleyball and the ball should not be hard and reduces the risk of injury.
