Volleyball has been and remains the only team sport that is played without involving contact between players. It is practiced in more than 130 countries by more than 800 million people. It is made available to everyone. This is a discipline that has continued to spread to such an extent that it is cited as an example to bring certain sports reserved for a category of person such as golf to democratize. But how is it that volleyball has continued to democratize?
It is a discipline practiced by a team of six people in a room which has seen new practices develop in recent years. This time it is not practiced in a room, but in the open air by two teams made up of only two players: Beach Volleyball. The parent discipline is characterized by repetitive jumps, waiting in a bent knee position with short explosive runs.
The risks are no less important. The position and role of the player as well as his contact with the ball and the ground remain the first responsible for injuries. These are usually not serious. It can be practiced at any age and requires coordination and especially physical skills. It is a discipline that opens up to the world.
