The aim of this study is to describe the morphological and anthropometric characteristics of the elite Serbian male volleyball players, trying to identify any differences between playing positions. For this purpose, 18 elite male volleyball players ( age: 24 +/- 5 years, years of playing: 13 +/- 2, hours of training per week: 37 +/-  3 ) were submitted to a body composition evaluation. Body fat percent and body/mass index (BMI) were estimated from : body mass, height, ten  skinfolds, seven circumferences and four bone diameters. Body mass ranged from 78 kg to 113 kg (mean value 81,2 kg ). Body height ranged from 191 cm to 207 cm (mean value 199,2 ). Serbian male volleyball players have approximately the same body mass and height as elite male volleyball  players from other countries.
Body/mass index (BMI) ranged from 20,23 kg/m2 to 27,42 kg/m2 ( mean value 23.03 kg/m2) . Body fat percent ranged from 4,8 % to 16,4 % (mean value 10,76 % ) .This is ideal BMI and body fat percent for male players. Conclusion: These male volleyball players differed in some respects in anthropometric characteristics according to their different playing position. This is interpreted by their varying roles and physical demands during a volleyball game. Players were found to be relatively homogeneous across the same playing positions.
