Lightweight volleyball

7th April 2000 at 01:00
For many, volleyball is a sport played once, then avoided at all costs in an attempt to save the wrists. Davies The Sports People company has responded by introducing new, kinder, lightweight balls. The traditional small hard ball has been replaced by a Spordas VB Trainer Elite, a stylish yellw ball that can be up to 40 per cent lighter than a standard ball - and 25 per cent larger, making it an easier target.

Prices start at pound;7.50, from: Davies The Sports People, Novera House, Excelsior Road, Ashby Park, Ashby de la Zouch, Leicestershire LE65. Tel: 01530 418000. PB
