This primary study investigates the challenges and obstacles facing the development of volleyball in Oman. The researcher conducted questionnaires and interviews with eighty one volleyball sport specialists in an effort to trace their athletic, coaching and administration background in the development of volleyball. Each of these respondents played multiple sports, specialised in volleyball and spent the majority of their career promoting and developing this field. Qualitative and quantitative data were gathered and analysed, which showed several similarities in their participation. The results of this study reflected the current volleyball situation in Oman. Also, it was compared with similar studies implemented on volleyball in neighboring countries. The output of this research has led to a greater understanding of the challenges facing the development of volleyball in Oman. Furthermore, suggestions to improve this sport, nationally and internationally, have been proposed.
