Then there is the net snapping and ripping your face. The other team spiking
close to the net and the fist hitting your face. Then there are the feet
under the net that twist your ankle. I've seen two broken ankles that way,
and heaps of less serious injuries. Oh, and you might think volleyball is a
non-contact sport, but so is hockey (hah) and cricket and baseball, and such
belief isn't too true to form in the actual game. Besides in volleyball
there are usually cute girls to distract as well which helps cause accidents.
