Wallyball is a fast, dynamic and exciting sport that is played by both male and female sexes as well as a wide range of ages. Also known as 'rebound volleyball', it is a close relative of volleyball, and shares many rules, techniques, plays and features. However there are some fundamental differences, the main one being that players are allowed to utilise the walls and ricochet the ball off there. The sport of Wallyball is often thought to have been created by Joe Garcia, but it was actually devised by a gentleman known as Bill Dejonghe from the Calabasas Racquetball Club. Faced with falling numbers using the club in summer, he devised the game as a way to help bring more business in. The game now has its own designated rules and regulations, is played in nations across the world and is overseen by the American Wallyball Association. The object of Wallyball is for one team to beat their opposing team by scoring more points than them.

Wallyball known in some places as rebound volleyball is a fast-paced sport that is volleyball played in a racquetball court, where it is legal to hit the ball off of the walls. Wallyball may have roots in an earlier game known as Deckerball, which used similar mechanics and was played as early as In Kansas, Illinois , a high school physical education teacher and a couple of students sat down to create a game that combined several skills from other games that would be used for indoor play during bad weather situations. By combining handball , tennis , and volleyball, they arrived at the game known as Deckerball after one of the students involved in its creation, Mark Decker. The word "wallyball" is a portmanteau of the words " wall " and "volleyball".
