This form of volleyball was first played in 1915 in Waikiki, Hawaii. It has very similar rules to its big brother, indoor volleyball. The main difference lies in the team composition; while the traditional volleyball is played with two teams of six against each other, its beach version features teams of two players. Although some may believe that it is mainly an entertainment game, it actually has a developed professional scene with both international and regional competitions. Also, it is played an event at the Summer Olympic Games. The game is especially popular in the United States and Brazil.
Beach Volleyball Competitions
The main beach volleyball competitions are sanctioned by FIVB, the international volleyball organization located in Switzerland. It organizes the FIVB World Tour, the most competitive professional circuit, which includes multiple top international events. For example, in the 2018 season, the World Tour includes 49 tournaments with a total prize pool exceeding $7 million. The events are rated from 1 to 5 stars, with a 1-star event having the lowest prize pools and 5-star competitions offering the most money up for grabs. FIVB also organizes the World Championships, which are held once every two years. The 2019 one took place in Hamburg, Germany. Apart from FIVB events, there are plenty of regional competitions in Asia, Africa and Europe. Such a diversity of events makes beach volleyball an interesting sport type for enthusiasts to place bets on since there are plenty of options available, and you can always find a match with reasonable odds.
