A volleyball is a ball used to play indoor volleyball, beach volleyball, or other variations of the sport. Volleyballs are round and traditionally consist of eighteen nearly rectangular panels of leather-like material, arranged in six identical sections of three panels each, wrapped around an air bladder.
Blue and yellow balls
These balls resemble those made by real-life manufacturer Mikasa Sports and are most often seen in matches and tournaments. This reflects real-life, as Mikasa are the manufacturer of the official balls of the Fédération Internationale de Volleyball that are used in real competitions.
Red, Green, and White balls
These balls resemble those from real-life manufacturer Molten and are more commonly used in practice and occasional practice matches. Shōyō Hinata and Tobio Kageyama are shown practicing with this type of ball late at night before their first match.
