Beach Volleyball is such an amazing sport for so many reasons. It’s such a great way to stay busy during the summer. Even though beach volleyball and indoor volleyball are basically the same sport they definitely do have their differences. Of course, the major difference being that indoor volleyball is played on a court in a facility and beach volleyball is played outside in the sand. Since indoor volleyball is played with two teams of six on one side of the net–9m by 9m– one player has less room to cover, all they have to focus on is their one position. However, in beach volleyball, it’s only you and your partner against another team of two. The beach volleyball court is also a little smaller than the indoor court, being 16m by 8m. Beach volleyball is a good way to build up your stamina because you’re running around and jumping in the sand for hours. It’s also a great way to get/stay in shape and build up your muscles. Your calves, quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes and hip flexors are all essential for running, but they also play an important part in having quick, explosive jumps. Usually, when indoor volleyball players are approached with the idea of playing indoor volleyball, they might think of it as absolute torture but once you get on the sand and adapt to the new rules you learn to love the sport and some even learn to love it more than indoor.
