Volleyball : "Volleyball in the world"

Hello everybody!

My name is Ilenia and I used to be a volleyball player. Two years ago I gave up on this sport to play tennis. This year I started with athletics and I love this sport very much!
Anyway volleyball is still one of my favourite sports and although I'm not in a team anymore I still play it at school with my mates.

Time ago I read an article which was about the most popular sports in the world. Volleyball is at the 6th place. Here in Italy it is quite popular and there are many children and people of my age that play it, but this sport isn't followed by many people. On TV there are always football matches.

So in the end I would like to know if in your country this sport is played and followed by many or few people.

Have a nice day :)

i'm a volley-ball player in club.
I love french team, maybe you know them, they are "team Yavbou" :)
in France, football is the most popular sport on TV, and before we never see volley-ball on TV and nobody knows Earvin Ngapeth or national french team.
BUT now, with the "Team Yavbou", who won World league 2015, European championship, and now they are qualified to the JO 2016.. they are more publicized. But it's not like the football and it's not on the bests-known TV channels!
sorry for my english !

Yes, Volleyball is my favorite sport too. I almost gave it up for cheer leading but I stopped and realized that this was a sport I was good at.

Hello Ilenia!

My name is Ching-Tang, studying in the National Chengchi University. Now I'm a setter in the department volleyball team.

Volleyball is not a popular sport in Taiwan.
It is a little difficult to find a volleyball court outside of school.
Most of volleyball players are college students and it is common that people start playing volleyball in college.

I hope I can make friends with you, and maybe we can talk about volleyball in the future.

Best wishes :D
