Gabby Reece Returning to Professional Volleyball

Gabby Reece Returns to the World of Pro Volleyball

Volleyball superstar Gabrielle Reece made a big announcement this week: the 40-year-old mom is returning to the pro volleyball circuit this July. Calling it her "comeback," Gabby told ABC News that she decided to play on the Association of Volleyball Professionals (AVP) circuit this year because of changes its new owners made. Those changes include a shorter competition schedule and the return of the "four on four" format, meaning teams of four play against one another. On whether or not she's excited to be coming back to the sport, Gabby said, "I am. It's fun. You're outside, it's on the beach, and you're around all these great girls." She also mentioned that she's excited to play with the "younger girls," too.

Gabby says she's feeling comfortable and strong, and that even after she stopped playing pro volleyball (almost 10 years ago), she's always kept a training schedule and an active lifestyle. The only thing she's not looking forward to? Those regulation bikini bottoms. The star says she will be doing her best to lobby for the return of tights.
