Best Answer

Scoring: Beach volleyball are best played in three sets. The first two sets are played to 21 points. The final tie breaker is played to 15 points. A team must win a set by two points. There is no ceiling, so a set continues until the two point advantage is made. Right Side or Left Side: Two players evenly split the court. Left-handers usually perfer the right side, and right-handers vice versa. Play Front Court or Back Court: The better defender keeps to the back of the court to make digs, while the player in the front of the court spikes the ball and defends the front court. Playing the Game- Most players have what they call a "bag of tricks". They know if they go out there and wear themselves out in the beginning they have no chance in winning. That's why their are a variety of shots and defense moves, so that they can maintain their energy the whole time.

Beach Volleyball

There are no formal positions for beach volleyball, the team consists of two players who do not have to rotate positions but do need to alternate serve.

the following is from wikipedia

  • Each half of the court measures 8 by 8 meters, not 9 by 9 as in indoor volleyball (this rule was instituted in 2002).
  • Overhand finger passes are called very tightly when receiving or attacking. Unless executed very cleanly and square to the shoulders, they are ruled illegal. The exception is receiving a hard smash.
  • When using overhand finger passes and hand sets, the standard for double hits is much stricter than in indoor volleyball, and the standard for lifts is less strict.
  • The block counts as the first contact.
  • Open-hand dinks, where a player uses his or her finger tips to redirect the ball into the opponent's court, are illegal.
  • It is legal to cross under the net as long as doing so does not interfere with the opponents' attempt to play the ball.
  • Players are not required to rotate positions; they must alternate service, but there are no 'rotation errors'.
  • Most players, either by choice or by requirement of the rules, play the game barefoot.
  • The ball is softer (lower internal pressure) and very slightly bigger than an indoor volleyball.
