Smashbal: A cool new youth volleyball experience

It is hoped that the game will encourage more young boys and girls to take up the sport of volleyball and develop a passion for it

Amsterdam, the Netherlands, January 5, 2014 – Smashbal, a new volleyball game for young boys and girls, is quickly gaining ground in the Netherlands.

The game has four levels and each rally ends with volleyball’s most attractive and challenging technique – the smash.

Smashbal can be played within the outer lines of a badminton court or on half a volleyball court with a C-youth (7m) end line and the 3-metre line functioning as a serve line.

The duration of a rally is predominantly determined by the height of the net. The net height can be set depending on the players’ level of play. The basic rule of the net height is that the top of the net is level with the wrist of an extended arm.

A Smashbal team can comprise two or three persons and the game can also be played in two against three formations.
