Volleyball Net Height


At the end of the 1800s, when William G. Morgan first invented the sport, he initially established the original volleyball net height at six feet, six inches.

Since the sport was introduced first to the YMCA, the Young Men's Christian Association only men were playing the game so the first net height was pretty low compared to the volleyball height of today.

Today, for the men, the official volleyball net height which is measured starting at the top of the net in the center of the court to the ground should be seven (7) feet 11 5/8 inches.

The women's volleyball net height is officially seven (7) feet 4 1/8 inches.

 

 

In variations of the indoor volleyball game, the net height can be different as well.

For example, in the Asian community, the very popular nine-person volleyball game not only is the volleyball court larger, but the official net height is lower at 243 cm.

Sitting volleyball is another version of the indoor game with court size, volleyball net height and some rule modifications that allow disabled individuals to play the game competitively.

While the volleyball net dimensions remain the same as those of indoor volleyball, in sitting volleyball the court is smaller at 10 x 6 meters. They play with a two-meter attack line instead of a ten foot (three-meter) line.

Additionally the men's official volleyball net height is 1.15m and for the women it is 1.05 meters which is approximately three and a half feet high. 

The official volleyball net height is measured from the center of the net with a measuring device and should be consistently  even at both ends near the antennae.  

There apparently is an allowance of 3/4 of an inch difference in the volleyball net height at the sidelines near the antenna compared to the official volleyball net height in the center of the net.

If you're playing coed volleyball, then you should be playing on an official volleyball net height set at 7' 11 5/8" which is the established men's height.

This said, alot of people like to set the coed volleyball net height somewhere between this men's height and the official women's height.

Speaking of volleyball nets... there are quite a few major manufacturers of volleyball nets on the market today.
