Custom Volleyball Uniforms, Jerseys, Shirts & Shoes From The Graphic Edge
Volleyball was originally devised in 1895 as a hybrid
sport that enabled elder people to stay active without enduring the
overly strenuous and physical nature of the era’s most popular sports.
Initially called “Mintonette” by its creator, William G. Morgan, the
game borrowed basic elements from tennis, basketball, handball and even
As the two teams hit the ball back and forth over a 6 foot 6 inch net
separating the opposing sides, a common spectator noted that “volleying”
seemed to be the main fundamental of the game, and thus Mintonette
acquired the moniker still recognized today.
Although Morgan created the game with older, less mobile players in
mind, the game’s popularity was propelled by the increased intensity and
athleticism employed by international players, namely enthusiasts from
the Philippines. It was in this country in 1916 that players developed
the set, spike, and kill, which was then known as a “bomba.”
Since then the game has continued to blossom, as the evolution of
strategies and athletic abilities has transformed the game into a true
sports spectacle. Changing along with the sport has been volleyball
uniforms and volleyball shoes. In the early days, players wore basic
shorts, shirts, and shoes; however, lengthier matches and fierce
competition hastened the need for more accommodating volleyball team
Whereas earlier players wore basic volleyball shirts (short or
long-sleeve), sleeveless custom volleyball jerseys allowing greater
freedom of movement eventually replaced those traditional styles.
Minimal restriction to the arms and legs has become the aim of every
volleyball team uniform, as no match should be decided by the wardrobes.
Custom volleyball uniforms are just one area where athletic apparel has
improved the game. As the sport is naturally dependent on vertical
jumping, with the litany of spikes and blocks around the net, drastic
technology improvements to modern volleyball shoes enable athletes to
jump higher while limiting wear on the main joints. In this sense,
advanced volleyball shoes might have an even greater effect on the game
than custom volleyball shirts and shorts.
