Olympic Beach Volleyball - Beach Volleyball History

Beach volleyball was probably first played in Hawaii in 1915, when the Outrigger Beach and Canoe Club set up a court on Waikiki Beach but most people believe that it begun in Santa Monica, California, in the 1920s, about 25 years after the indoor version of the game was invented on the other side of the USA in Massachusetts. The sport began as a form of family fun at the beach and its wide appeal and low-cost meant it soon spread around the world.
Beach Volleyball or Sand Volleyball is similar to Indoor Volleyball. Beach Volleyball evolved in Hawaii in 1915. Beach Volleyball is governed by Fédération Internationale de Volleyball (FIVB) organization. Beach Volleyball debuted as an exhibition game in 1992 Olympic. Olympic Beach Volleyball will be contested from Saturday 28th July to
Thursday 9th August during 2012 Olympic London. Sport Ticket Exchange is suitable source to
