Hello and welcome to walleyball.org!

Greetings! This work in progress is here to help people learn about my favorite sport (walleyball) and find places to play it. So, without further ado:

Wallyball "is a fast-paced sport that is similar to volleyball played in a racquetball court" (from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wallyball.

There is an 'official' walleyball organization, the American Walleyball Association.

For a bit of history on WB, check out the RulesOfSport web site, which also mentions the actual creator of WB - Bill Dejonghe. However, Joe Garcia was the one who popularized the game and is sometimes credited with its creation.

For some videos of WB use your favorite search engine, or look for the Walleyball videos on https://duckduckgo.com/?t=lm&q=walleyball&atb=v302-1&iax=videos&ia=videos

The group I am currently in tries to play every Monday and Friday from 7PM to 9:45PM, at Tempe Lakes Racquet Club (Tempe AZ), and I'm attempting to start up a Thursday group as well. If you're in the area, drop in and see if we're playing. If there's room, you can join.

I should perhaps mention that not all groups who play WB follow all the 'standard' rules. My first group basically treated the net as something to keep you from falling in to the other side, with no 'side out' for touching it in any way. That group did, however, follow the standard rule that hitting the wall on your side didn't count in the 'only one wall' rule (the 'official' standard doesn't count your side against you). The group I currently play in is a bit lax on the net touching, but we do call it. However, the current group counts ALL wall touches on the way across, so you get one and only one wall hit.

Should anyone wish to help make this web site prettier, please talk to me! (I'm working on a way to allow you to talk to me without my giving my email address, please be patient! Or drop by when we're playing! ;-)
