Olympic Beach Volleyball is a game that is played on sand. The court is divided into two halves with a net extended at a certain height across the middle of the court. Team players have positions that they play and using a ball designed for the Olympic volleyball game, the two teams score points by “grounding” the ball on the opposing side of the net. To win a set a team must reach twenty-five points, and to win an Olympic volleyball beach game or tournament a team must win three sets total. When volleyball is essentially played on the beach the ball used for game play is different than that used in an indoor volleyball game. The ball is usually softer and easier to handle, whereas those volleyball games played indoors use a different style altogether. Olympic beach volleyball first began as an exhibition game in 1992, during the Barcelona Olympics. Since those times the tournaments have been an active part of the Olympics for several different countries.
