Beach volleyball is a derivative of the very popular game of volleyball. It is played on many beaches around the world. The difference being that this game is played on sand rather than being played on indoor courts. It is usually played 2 per side.

The game of beach volleyball has become extremely popular over the last few years resulting in it making it into the Olympic Games in 1996. It can be played by young and old, male and females. It is also a very good spectator sport too.

The biggest draw of the sport of beach volleyball is that fact that it can be played anywhere there is an area of sand large enough to accommodate an 16m by 16m court - measurements are the official measurements, fun games rarely follow these.

People of all abilities can play beach volleyball, all it takes is a group of people to get together, erect a net and you can play. At its basic level men and women can play together in mixed teams, more serious players play in male/female only games

Beach volleyball started its life at Santa Monica in the state of California (US) back in the 1920s. Ten years later, beach volleyball began to appear in Europe. By the 1940s, two-man doubles tournaments were being played on the beaches of Santa Monica for trophies. In the 1960s, an attempt to start a professional league was made in Santa Monica which failed, but a few professional tournaments were held in the 1970s. It enjoyed its biggest surge in the 1990s when well=known stars emerged.
