Beach Volleyball Characteristics
Beach Volleyball is a sport played by two teams on a sand court divided by a net.
The team has three hits for returning the ball (including the block touch).
In Beach Volleyball, the team winning a rally scores a point (Rally Point System). When the receiving team wins a rally, it gains a point and the right to serve. The serving player must be alternated every time this occurs.
First contact with the ball after the serve. The “reception” is a forearm pass that is used to control and pass the ball to the partner. The “reception” can be used also to make a direct “set”.
Blocking is the action of players close to the net to intercept the ball coming from the opponent by reaching higher than the top of the net, regardless of the height of the ball contact. At the moment of the contact with the ball, a part of the body must be higher than the top of the net.
The ball shall be spherical, made of a flexible material (leather, synthetic leather, or similar) which does not absorb moisture, i.e. more suitable to outdoor conditions since matches can be played when it is raining. The ball has bladder inside made of rubber or a similar material. Approval of synthetic leather material is determined by FIVB regulations.
