Development of Volleyball in Hong Kong
LANGUAGE NOTE | Document text in Chinese; abstract also in English.
Volleyball was first introduced to China in 1905. Nanwu College in Guangzhou and Queen's College in Hong Kong started to play volleyball in their schools. Since then, volleyball had been very popular in Hong Kong. The Hong Kong and Kowloon Volleyball Association was formed in 1951 and began to promote volleyball in a systematic manner. International competitions were held since 1976, including the World Women's Volleyball Challenge Cup in 1983 and International Beach Volleyball Championships in 1990. After the return of sovereignty to China, the Hong Kong and Kowloon Volleyball Association was renamed as Volleyball Association of Hong Kong, China which has since then organized many volleyball promotional programmes in Hong Kong with the support of the International Volleyball Federation.
