Volleyball Equipment FAQ
What is the difference between a volleyball hammock and volleyball cart?
There are two major differences between volleyball carts and volleyball hammocks – size and depth. Volleyball carts are a bit smaller in terms of space and also a bit deeper allowing them to hold 36 inflated volleyballs. Hammocks do take up a bit more space, but that is because the depth is shallower and it is easier to get balls in and out of the cart in order to run faster drills. We offer several different Molten, Mikasa and Tachikara ball hammock/cart options.
