Olympic Beach Volleyball - Beach Volleyball Overview

Beach volleyball, or sand volleyball, is an Olympic team sport played by two teams of two players on a sand court divided by a net. Beach Volleyball came of age on the sun-soaked beaches of Santa Monica, California, during the 1920s. Like volleyball, the object of the game is to send the ball over the net in order to ground it on the opponent’s court, and to prevent the same effort by the opponent. The event now regarded as the first Beach Volleyball World Championships was held in the state in 1976, and was even won by a pair of Californians (Greg Lee and Jim Menges). However, over the last three decades, the sport has moved far beyond its West Coast roots and is now played all over 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.
