8 Richest Volleyball Players

In the 1920s when the first volleyball court is believed to have been put up, we doubt the folks from the 20th century ever thought it would become a profitable sport. In France, it was the principal game for a nudist camp while in the USA people would play volleyball to escape their miseries.  Today volleyball is a global sport that is making big bucks for the skilled and talented few. Here’s a list of 8 richest volleyball players.
