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 5v5, 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 at the Summer Olympic Games. The game is especially popular in the United States and Brazil.

The main beach volleyball competitions are sanctioned by FIVB, the international volleyball organization located in Switzerland. It organizes FIVB World Tour, the most competitive professional circuit which includes multiple top international events. For example, in the 2018 season World Tour includes 49 tournaments with a total prize pool exceeding $7,000,000. The events are rated from 1 to 5 stars, with 1-star event having the lowest prize pools, and 5-star competitions offering the most money for grabs. FIVB also organizes the World Championships, which is held once in two years, the next one will take place in 2019 in Hamburg, Germany. Apart from FIVB events, there are plenty of regional competitions in Asia, Africa, and Europe.
