[Solved] What sport was originally called “mintonette”?

…Volleyball was invented in the late 19th century by William G. Morgan, the physical director of the YMCA in Holyoke, Massachusetts. Morgan originally named it “mintonette,” which he adapted from badminton, but it got its modern name after a local professor noted the game’s volleying nature. Volleyball quickly spread around the country, and the first national volleyball tournament was held in 1922.
