I haven't encountered a single volleyball coach that would advocate a
close-fisted approach. You are correct in observing that an
open-handed swing and contact gives you far more control. For
instance, with a fist approach, it's impossible to impart topspin on
on the ball.
BTW, that's certainly an interesting choice of dejanews username.
