VolleySLIDE - Getting Started - Court Setup

Something that is usually one of the biggest fears of people looking to start is sourcing the equipment and setting up a court, and yet it can be relatively easy.  For a VolleySLIDE blog on different equipment options please CLICK HERE.  

 

The two VolleySLIDE resource cards above work through different options available when setting up a court.  Ultimately all you really need is a flat space of a suitable size (note you do not need a full size volleyball court!) and a safe and secure way of establishing a net at your desired height.  These requirements are considerably less than other Paralympic/disability team sports.   The main bit of advice is to try to make use of what already exists, whether that be badminton court lines on the floor, or volleyball post sockets.  

 

Courts have been set up in a number of different ways before, but as long as your set-up is safe then that is all that is required to start with.  Some hazards to look out for are: things on the floor that can cause  injury or irritation, sharp items on the net or posts that players could hit their hands on, make sure that anything that a player could move and fall onto is padded without any sharp edges.
