  8. When I was a teenager I thought I had a good serve, but when one of my sons played competitive volleyball when he was maybe 14, the tournaments I took him to absolutely blew my mind.

    While I love the recreational play aspect that anyone (such as myself) can do, I also learned to appreciate the much more professional and athletic play I could never have aspired to.

    1. Hi Kevin, thanks for your comment. Glad to know that you played volleyball in your younger days. Yes it’s true that competitive volleyball is much more professional these days and the competition is of different level. Most people play volleyball as a recreational sporting activity and that’s the beauty of the sport. You don’t have to be a pro to enjoy playing it.
