Top 10 proof that volleyball is the best sport

We always talk about football, football, but it obscures other great sports, especially volleyball.

Yes, football is good, I’m not saying the opposite, but frankly volleyball is better, and it’s not me to say that, it’s a CNRS researcher who proves it A study done by (Don’t look at the internet, it was suppressed by the soccer lobby).

It’s a mixed sport on the beach in the summer, but if you’re not interested in volleyball, I’ll explain why you definitely need to.

1. It’s one of the most equal sports

In 2018, of the 105,304 licenses issued annually, about 55,000 were issued to men and about 50,000 to women. This is a popular sport in France, especially other very rugby and soccer.

The first good thing about volleyball, a comprehensive sport, is that even professional sports are developing equally between men and women (all sports can say the same thing). Not).

2. You can do it in the summer on the beach

You certainly noticed it in the summer, all the most beautiful beaches have beach volleyball courts accessible to everyone.

It’s a great opportunity to spend some time between two swims and meet people. And you tell me, “Yes, but there are also beach soccer and beach rugby!” “Yes, but they rarely provide a basis for these sports. Obviously, everyone gets drunk and makes friends. You’ll try to confront and finally fall to the girl who was quietly tanned next door. So no photo, beach rugby is the perfect sport to practice on the beach in the summer.

3. An accessible sport where you can play with your friends

Unlike sports that require real courts and equipment, such as tennis, and sports that have complex rules, such as rugby, you can be completely relaxed and play volleyball easily.

And even if you don’t have the internet, you can make small passes with your friends. It’s always good.

Overall volleyball is not the most difficult sport to understand and practice (even if you have a broken arm to throw the ball for the rest of your life), but a friendly sport. Yes, football is a bit the same, but as mentioned in point 1, it’s unfortunately still very gendered, a sport practiced primarily by men, not hyperinclusive. Volleyball is likely to be practiced at least once by all members of the band, male and female.

4. Remember that the French men’s team won the last Olympics

At the Tokyo Olympics last summer, the French were the first to become the Olympic champions in history against the Russians. What’s more, France won the European Championships in 2015. Otherwise, France is ranked 4th in the 2021 FIVB ranking. Therefore, the choice of men here is important in the game and has the right to be a little more recognized. Darling, it’s time to get interested in this sport.

5. It’s obviously a BG sport

Very objectively, people who play volleyball have a certain presence. We’re halfway between elegance, relaxation, regularity and strength, and frankly rendering isn’t bad.

Between Ealban Nugapes, Kévin Tillie, or among the females Helena Kazaute and Nina Stoirikovich, you can see that this sport reveals our best.

6. It’s physical and fun

Obviously, for all sports in that regard, everything depends on the level. But remember when you chose between volleyball and swimming, or volleyball and 3x500m at school. For most of us, the choice was immediate.

Volleyball is a fun sport when you practice “cool”, but when you train seriously, it becomes a body. The same is not true for athletics. For example, if you’re not jogging at 3km / h, you’ll rarely get tired. Similarly in soccer, if you run for 90 minutes, you can relax.

7. Club membership and licenses are not very high

Depending on the club and age (always cheap for kids), if you want to join and compete in a volleyball club, you will pay € 100 a year, and in some cases € 200 at a slightly more expensive club.

But even € 200 for training sessions twice a week (or more) and weekend games isn’t that big (subscribing to a room of € 25 a month costs € 300 a year, I will never go there again.)

Other sports that are very popular in France, especially among young people, are much more expensive as they are obviously sports for the rich, such as tennis and horseback riding. why ? Competitions are very often paid and club membership is expensive (especially for horseback riding).

In addition, volleyball does not require any special equipment. Costumes are often provided by clubs and you only need to buy shoes that last for a year.

Conclusion: In volleyball, the quality-price ratio is not a bad thing.

8. You will not be surprised by the sick contact

Do you see your friend Remy who broke his nose in rugby? Or Brenda who took the right in boxing? Or even Jean Jordan who broke his knee after a bad soccer tackle?

Well (a priori) volleyball doesn’t cause these problems just because it’s not a contact sport. You’re obviously less likely to blow up something, and if that happens to you in the end, it’s because you were shot in your mouth and you can only blame yourself.

9. It’s also an indoor sport, so you can do it all year round.

Say goodbye to training at -3 ° C. In mid-January, volleyball takes place indoors, so say goodbye to jogging in the rain. I swear it’s cool.

I can’t say the same for all the cool sports that can only be practiced for 6 months a year. Still, don’t count the days of rain, wind, snow, tornadoes, landslides …

In short, you can be warm in your gym and play with great luxury when you want.

10. Because you have to stop enrolling your child in soccer or tennis.

I’ve been working for a while to re-evaluate this beautiful sport of volleyball.

Therefore, if you have children / small siblings / cousins ​​/ or anything that looks like a human smaller than you, stop registering them systematically in football, tennis, or football. Horse (You say “horse” because you don’t lie, not “horse riding”).

Or, if you decide to switch to a sport that combines cheerfulness, physical effort, and team spirit, you’ll know where to go. And this top is not sponsored by the FFVB, in any case you don’t even know what it is, you are a bunch of uneducated people.
