Australian Sports Commission confirms volleyball is all the rage

The appeal of volleyball in Australia has been underlined by the results of the Australian Sports Commission’s first ever national survey of sport participation across the nation.

The AusPlay survey shows volleyball is not just the most gender-equal in Australia, but it is also the third biggest Olympic team sport, one of the largest team sports by participation, and is popular from young children through to the over 50’s.
