Effects of Playing Volleyball

The benefits of playing volleyball stimulates coordination and concentration; improves speed, skill, and reflexes; reinforces thigh and abdominal muscles; and the formation of a group synergy within the team.

Volleyball has very few disadvantages. As there is no physical contact with others, it is a fairly safe sport. You should, however, pay attention to potential back and knee problems that could result from participating in the sport. It is also related to the experience of micro-traumas to fingers, ankles, knees, the face, the back, and other various muscles.
