Candid Volleyball Situations – Some Of Them Can Be Very Humorous

I have been part of candid volleyball moments. When you spend a lot of time playing volleyball, it is inevitable for some funny things to happen. Although this really has nothing to do with volleyball training; it has everything to do with life and finding some funny moments.


There have been so many moments that bring a smile to my face as I think about it. I remember the countless times I would go up for a block and spread my hands too far apart. Of course, the hitter would look for the opening in the block and would bounce it off of my head.

On a couple of occasions, I remember the ball actually going off of my head and still landing on their side of the court. Nothing like scoring a point with your head!

I remember playing in a beach volleyball league and needing a point during the championship match. It was a really close game and we were down one point. I decided to do a jump serve so that they would have a harder serve to pass. I tossed the ball, took a few steps, and jumped to swing at the ball. To this day, I still do not know what happened, but I hit the ball wrong and I launched the ball like a satellite in orbit. That candid volleyball moment ended up costing us first place, but it is funny in retrospect.

I used to play a lot of co-ed volleyball and there were quite a few men and women that were not very good volleyball players. I remember several times where myself or other players would go up for a spike and they would literally run off of the court in fear.

One of the best candid volleyball memories of mine was a game of volleyball in my backyard. My friend from high school and I were playing against my brother and my mother. My mom dinked a ball over the net and started to talk about how she spiked on me. I am really competitive and so my blood started boiling.

On the next play, my friend game me a perfect set and I crushed the ball. It bounced off of my mom’s head. She spun around in a full circle and fell over. I remember watching Loony Toons as a kid and seeing many of the characters having stars going around their heads. This was the first time I have ever seen that in real life.

I felt terrible then, but now that it is over, we frequently talk of that experience when we gather as a family and it is always good for a laugh.

These are a few of my experiences that bring some volleyball humor to the table. What are some of your stories?
