With the proliferation of beach volleyball, more and more people are getting into the sport and that takes buying the right equipment. So here are the best volleyball equipment brands to look for in your sports store. Players shop for complete systems or for any of the elements including, nets, volleyballs, boundaries, or the various accessories that you can buy with them. These brands are available at most top sporting goods retailers and can be purchased separately or in sets. It is a good idea to speak with a sales person about your goals and your level of play, particularly when you are purchasing equipment to set up a volleyball court in your back yard or to have a portable set for outdoors or the beach.
The venerable brands, Wilson and Spalding are still amongst the best in the sport. They are joined by Mikasa, Asics, Adidas, Kaepa, Mizuno, Tachikara, and Vincere Sports. Each makes a range of volleyball products and excels in one area or another. Many retailers will put different brands together to create the ultimate volleyball systems for both indoor, outdoor, and beach play.
Spalding makes a complete line of volleyballs with some more suitable to indoor play, others to outdoor play, and some primarily for beach volleyball competition. Their indoor systems are custom assembled to give you the exact components that you need for your particular situation. You can even get a raised referee's platform as part of it if you are going to compete seriously.
Wilson offers volleyballs, bags, knee pads, and other equipment. The company has an advisory staff of top professional volleyball players who guide Wilson in their manufacturing of the best technical equipment for the game. And their equipment is used in the top professional and college programs in the country. So it is well tested before you even enter a retailer to buy it. Of all the brands, Wilson takes the most scientific approach to the sport and offers products that reflect that philosophy.
Mizuno is more geared to the fashion of volleyball and offers advance-designed shoes and athletic wear along with a beautiful USA volleyball, emblazoned with the American flag.
