There is an obvious connection between the beautiful female form and the popularity of women’s volleyball. Not to take anything away from the sport – some of these women are gifted athletes with amazing coordination, speed, and stamina – but I think some of the audience is there to check out the babes. Generally long of limb, lean, and scantily dressed, this is understandable. Indoor women’s volleyball is great, but outdoor has the added benefit of bikinis and tanlines. The women, especially the outdoor athletes, seem to play off this fact with their attire and even their sponsorships.
