How to play beach volleyball?

  • Beach volleyball is played on sand with two teams of two players each.
  • The objective is to score points by hitting the ball over the net and into the opponent’s court without letting it touch the ground.
  • Players can use any part of their body to hit the ball, but each team has a maximum of three hits before sending it over the net.
  • The game continues until one team reaches a predetermined point total (e.g., 21 or 25) and has a two-point lead.
