EQUIPMENT

The beach court measures 26.25 feet by 52.5 feet (8.00 m × 16.00 m)

Beach volleyballs have a heavier weight than standard indoor balls and they are slightly larger, have a rougher external texture, and a lower internal pressure. They may be brightly colored or solid white.

Portable nets have tubular aluminum posts secured by guy ropes. The posts are in sections to allow for height adjustment. They take just a few minutes to erect and dismantle, packing away in a carry bag, including lines to mark the court.

The height of the net is 2.43m off the ground for men’s tournaments and 2.24m off the ground for women’s tournaments.
