Best Camera/Lens for Indoor Sports?

I am a beginner/intermediate SLR photographer and am in the market for a basic good all-around digital SLR camera to mostly photograph indoor volleyball games. No flashes are allowed in these gymnasiums. I was looking at the Nikon D40/x but have decided there's not enough affordable lens' options for that camera. In order to justify my purchase, I am looking for ease of operation (my wife needs to be able to use the camera on occaision), with not too many options. I may "blow-up" a few pictures to 8x10, but mostly, I will print-out 4x6 pics. I'm OK with a 6-8 mega-pixel camera. I plan on using this camera on vacations, at parties, and some outdoor sports activities. So basically I'm looking for two different (auto-focus) lenses. If not a Nikon, I would prefer a Canon, but I have an open-mind for other brands. My budget is under $1k. I plan on keeping this camera for about ten years, so please help me narrow down this all important decision. Thank you for your time!
