The surface you're playing on. (It's also different from beach volleyball!)

Well, if you are just playing regular volleyball, but outside, the the ball isn't different. But if you are playing beach volleyball, they are made out of a different material.
There is actually a difference between the 2 balls. Outdoor ball pressure is 2.5-3.2psi. Indoor balls are much harder at 4.3-4.6psi. In other words a Beach volleyball is lighter then a indoor volleyball
There is hard court volleyball, which is played on a wooden floor and there is beach volleyball, which is played in the sand (There is also indoor beach volleyball, but it is much smaller than beach and hard court)
in a indoor court or at the beach when playing beach volleyball
As this goes without saying, the main difference between beach volleyball and indoor volleyball are the locations in which the games are played; beach volleyball being played on a beach court, and indoor volleyball being played on an indoor court. While indoor volleyball requires 6 athletes with fixed positions from each team on the court at one time, beach volleyball only requires 2, in most instances of competitive play. Other differences occur in areas such as the court. For example, a regulation indoor court is 30 feet by 30 feet on each side, while a beach court is 26.3 by 26.3 on each side. Also, a beach court lacks an attack line, or a ten foot line. Hope this helps!

Yes, Beach Volleyball is always played on a beach or a sand court, whereas Indoor Volleyball must always be played inside on a floor. But they both have the same rules in Volleyball it's just the court that is different. In terms of difficulty, a Beach court is much more harder than a indoor court. It is harder on a Beach court because the sand weighs you down when you are running and jumping, and the wind plays a very big role when it comes to playing Beach Volleyball. Whereas Indoor Volleyball is safe from the elements and the floor is solid so you can run easily and jump higher than on a Beach court.
The size of a regulation volleyball depends on if it is used for indoor or beach volleyball. An indoor ball has the radius of about 21 centimeters, and a beach ball has a radius of about 21.7 centimeter.
