Volleyball at the 2012 Summer Paralympics was held from 30 August to 8 September at the ExCeL Exhibition Centre in London. Two events were contested: men's and women's team.

In the men's sitting event, Iran were the defending champions. Bosnia and Herzegovina and Iran were the finalists in 2000, 2004 and 2008, with Iran winning in 2000 and 2008 and Bosnia and Herzegovina in 2004. These two countries met once more in the final in Beijing, with Iran emerging victorious by 3–0. Egypt finished fourth in Beijing, beaten 2–3 by Russia, who took bronze.[1][2] Bosnia and Herzegovina men's team won the gold in 2012.

The London Games marked the third time the women's sitting event was held. China were the defending champions. The Netherlands took silver, and the United States bronze, in 2004. In Beijing, China was again victorious, while the US and the Netherlands switched places to ascend the podium with silver and bronze, respectively.[3]

Classfication[edit]

In sitting volleyball there are two categories of classification: disabled and minimal disability. A maximum of one minimally disabled player may be on the court for each team at any one time.

A part of the player's body between the buttocks and the shoulders must be in contact with the court when playing or attempting to play the ball.[4]

Qualification[edit]

There were 18 teams, 10 men's teams and 8 women's teams, taking part. Each country can enter one team per tournament.
