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 The traditional small hard ball has been replaced by a Spordas VB Trainer Elite, a stylish yellw ball that can be up to 40 per cent lighter than a standard ball - and 25 per cent larger, making it an easier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.
