Beach Volleyball - Playing Environment
Beach volleyball is played on a sand court with a light volleyball and a net bisecting the court. The playing area of beach volleyball is completely made up of sand. Any type of rocks and debris is removed from the surface of the court to prevent any type of injuries. The level of sand should be minimum 40 centimetres deep inside the court. As the players have to dive on the surface a lot, these safety measures are taken by the tournament hosts.
A standard volley ball court has a length of 16 metres and a breadth of 8 metres and the court is rectangular in nature. Surrounding the court, a free zone is there with a width of 3 metres.
