120 Volleyball Team Names

By on July 19, 2018

Did you know that volleyball was first invented back in 1895, by a chap called Willian G. Morgan. Back then it wasn’t called volleyball, however, but instead referred to as “mintonette”. It wasn’t until many years after that, that the sport became “official” enough to have a sporting event/competition and, in 1949, the very first volleyball World Championships were held … Only for men, though. It would take another three years for the women to finally have their own competition in the sport.

Just a few years later, in 1962, the sport was officially introduced into the Olympics, and with the exception of soccer — the sport that made it to the number one spot — volleyball is believed to be the second most popular sport/game on the entire planet, watched and played. There are more than a billion volleyball players globally, without taking into consideration those who watch it on TV and live.

If you are one of those people who love volleyball so much that you play the sport as well as watching it, you’ll probably be part of a team and, as every team knows, part of the success comes down to the team name. (We know that’s not entirely true, but, still, the name is important.)
