Geography of Volleyball The sport is played with 6 people on each team, each team getting three contacts every time they are in possession of the ball. Games are played to twenty-five. In 1895 these rules would not have described the game of Volleyball. In fact, it was not even called volleyball. The Director of Physical Education of the YMCA in Holyoke, Massachusetts was William G Morgan and also the first person to write down the rules of volleyball. Only it was called Mintonette. Originally, the sport was created to be a less exhausting sport than basketball. It is a mixture of basketball, tennis, handball, and baseball. But how did the rules change so much into the sport it is today? In the past, there were allowed to be as many people on the court as a team wanted. Along with this, the rules stated that each side could touch the ball as many times as needed before they sent the ball back over the net. This caused games to be extremely long because points were only able to be scored off of a serve and games were played to 15. Later, the rules were changed so that games were not played to 15, but to 25. Because games were so long, teams scored a point every time the ball dropped on the opponents’ side of the net. More techniques were developed (bump, set, and spike) to make the game more of a system and to go more quickly. Not only were the rules different for the general game of volleyball, there were specific rules just for men and women. For example, women were allowed to catch the ball before sending it back over the net in order to prevent hurting their fingers. But today, the only difference in rules for men and women is the net height. Men’s nets are 1.4 inches taller than women’s nets which stand at a height of 7’4”. Today, volleyball is a worldwide sport. Military personnel were the primary players of volleyball for a long time by playing it in their spare time and teaching it to the locals. Eventually, the…

Rules are what society is made of, without them people would not see them as in a society. Rules insure that people who think they are above or exempt from society are contained, such as if you steal from someone you are arrested, for the good of society. There would be deeper consequences if you preformed a felony crime, you would still be arrested and held accountable in order to keep society in balance.
Of course not all these rules work nor are 100% upheld properly but overall they are made…
feet are sinking in the warm sand. You and your partner are facing a big net, and two people are on the other side waiting for you to start serving. Beach volleyball is a sport that evolved from regular team volleyball, and like the indoor sport, it's all about teams serving and returning a lightweight ball over a tall net.
Beach volleyball was probably first played in Hawaii in 1915, when the Outrigger Beach and Canoe Club set up a court on Waikiki Beach. Most people though believe that it begun…

the things we need for the barbecue, while we were getting ready to go to the park where we’re hosting the barbecue. On our way there we stopped by my parents house to grab some things like the volleyball net and some coolers, and some ice for the drinks.
After we loaded all the coolers and the volleyball net. We all decided to take one car so we rode my parent’s Mini van because it’s bigger and fits everyone, so we left to the park. As we pull in to the park all I can see are the big tall trees…

Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi
John Swales (1990) gives his own perception of what a discourse community is. He says that there are “six defining characteristics” that identify a group. Many interested in a discourse community have their discussions within “academic contexts” which makes the group seem they are only associated with intellectuals (Swales, pgs. 222). That gives the group a false…
