What does it take to stand out on the volleyball court?

Is it sheer talent, unstoppable dedication, or an undeniable charm?

Playing volleyball in college deepened my appreciation for its strategic, team-oriented nature, going beyond agility to include understanding each player's strengths.

In a recent discussion among my colleagues about the attractiveness of skilled volleyball players, we sought diverse opinions by inviting our readers and subscribers to share their insights and cast their votes.

Uncover the secrets behind the allure of the top male volleyball players who not only dominate the game but also capture our hearts with their skills and charm.

The Hottest Male Volleyball Players

Here are the hottest volleyball players that readers and subscribers voted for.

These top male volleyball players combine athletic prowess with aesthetic appeal. Their toned physiques contribute to their exceptional gameplay, and their commanding presence on the court is a testament to their dedication and hard work.

15. Yuki Ishikawa

Hailing from Okazaki City in Japan's Aichi Prefecture, Yuki Ishikawa's prowess on the court is a blend of his cultural background and rigorous training, making him a standout talent in the world of volleyball.

Serving as the captain of the Japan men's national volleyball team as of April 2021, Ishikawa plays in the position of outside hitter.

He is also very handsome and loved by the ladies.

14. Aleksandar Atanasijevic

Aleksandar Atanasijevic, representing Serbia, has not only showcased his exceptional talent on the court but also clinched victories in two European Championships, underscoring his dedication and skill in the sport.

With his impressive height of 6 feet 8 inches (2.02 meters), Atanasijevic is often described as a striking giant.

His allure is further enhanced by his facial structure, particularly when his wavy brown hair is kept at a noticeable length.

13. Ivan Zaytsev

Ivan Zaytsev, nicknamed "the Tsar," is a volleyball player born in Russia but representing Italy, where he leads as the captain of the Italian men's national volleyball team.

With an impressive resume, Zaytsev has earned a bronze medal at the London 2012 Olympics, silver medals at the European Championships in 2011 and 2013, bronze medals at the World League in 2013 and 2014, an Italian Championship title in 2014, and a silver medal at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

His muscular build and distinctive tattoos have earned him the third spot on our list of the most attractive volleyball players.

12. Gord Perrin

A post shared by John Gordon Perrin (@gordperrin)

Gord is a tall and very muscular Canadian volleyball player who has been part of team Canada for both the Olympic Games and World League events.

He’s active on social media, and there’s a good reason why so many people are in awe of his handsome appearance.

11. Ricardo Lucarelli

Ricardo is arguably the most accomplished volleyball player from Brazil with four South America Cup wins, 2016 Olympic Champion, and 2014 World Championship silver medalist.

His aggressive style on the court is very different from the way he engages with fans and journalists. And it’s that smile and handsome face that draws in the female fans.

10. Evan Patak

Evan is one of the longest-serving members of the USA national volleyball team, and he’s definitely among the most handsome volleyball players.

He’s not the most active player on social media, but that’s mainly down to a complete focus on his playing career and physical shape.

9. Torey DeFalco

Torey is an American volleyball player who currently plays in Poland.

He won the NCAA championship twice, but it’s not just his volleyball talents that fans are interested in. He built up over 50k Instagram followers and judging by the amount of muscle he likes to show off, there’s a very good reason for that success.

8. Jenia Grebennikov

Jenia is French and one of the most handsome volleyball players from Europe. He’s still young at 31, and that means he could be delivering some of his best performances in the coming years.

While he plays for the French national team, he spends his professional playing time at Russian club Zenit Saint Petersburg where he also won a World League gold medal. Reasons he’s so popular among his female fans is surely his symmetrical face, well-built frame along with his charm on the court.

7. Mitchell Stahl

Mitchell is a volleyball player who is part of a very successful American national team. But he currently plays for a Polish club Stal Nysa. It seems like that perfectly groomed beard is part of the appeal, along with the tall and muscular body, as well as his strong conviction and sense for justice.

“Deceptive minds that wield what they consider to be power believe that the way they treat their subordinates will never be exposed. People can only take so much. Keep playing, and the world will see who you are.”

- Mitchell Stahl

6. Aaron Joseph Russell

It seems like the best volleyball players and most handsome ones all end up being rather tall.

Aaron is 6’8” and with a strong body and a great smile, he’s a worthy man for this list. Unfortunately, he’s married to a professional female volleyball player, so if you had some hopes of landing a great-looking man, you’re out of luck.

5. Bruno Rezende

Bruno is a Brazilian volleyball player who plays for the Italian club Funvic. He’s also a two-time gold medalist at the World Grand Champions Cup, and he’s also one of the volleyball players with the largest Instagram community with over 1.5 million followers.

That might have a lot to do with the fact that he regularly shows off his ripped body.

4. Matteo Martino

A post shared by Matteo Martino (@matteomartinoreal)

Matteo is one of the most successful players in the Italian volleyball league. As our top Italian stallion, we were particularly impressed with some professional photo shoots he’s done. As a little hint, there are plenty of photos where he’s wearing little else than what he was born with.

3. Brenden Lee Sander

Brenden Lee Sander is an American volleyball player, and at just 26 years old, he’s still got one hell of a career ahead of him. His older brother Taylor is a member of the U.S. volleyball team as well. Brenden is also building up quite a following on social media, where he shows off his body on a regular basis.

2. Facundo Conte

Facundo Conte is one of the most handsome volleyball players from Argentina. And while at “only” 6’6” he looks quite small next to Matt Anderson, he has that tango flair about him. He’s also a silver medalist at the Olympic Games and gold medalist at the 2015 Pan American Games.

A post shared by Matt Anderson (@mja5041)

Matt is an American professional volleyball player who literally stands out from all his fellow competitors. At 6’10” tall, he’s not just a towering player but has a bit of a Superman look going on. He has competed in Olympic Games, World Cup events, and the World League in 2014.

He certainly draws attention with his height and good looks.
