The game of Volleyball was introduced to Sri Lanka (then Ceylon) in 1916 by Mr. R.W. Camack the then Director of Physical Education at the Colombo Y.M.C.A. However there is evidence that Sri Lanka was playing a similar games long before this introduction. Mr. Camack also, demonstrated and instructed how to play the game initially to Teacher Trainees of the Teaching Training College and students of the school around Colombo. Volleyball was now becoming tremendously popular and by 1922 the City of Colombo alone had 25 Volleyball Clubs. Which is a clear indication of the popularity of the game, the final outcome resulted in forming of the “City Volleyball League” organized by Mr. Camack himself.

The Volleyball Federation was form in 1951and its development for such it was officially recognized as the National Game of Sri Lanka in 1991.

The Federation is built on 62 Affiliated Organizations and its affairs are conducted by a Honorary Committee consisting of 25 duly elected members.
