About Beach Volleyball
Teams of two will go head to head on the sand, beginning each rally by serving the ball over the net which will see the ball hit a maximum of three times on one side before being directed back across the net.
This back and forth across the net continues until one team wins the rally. Teams win a rally if the opponent fails to return the ball, commits a fault, or if the ball lands in the opponent’s court. The team who wins the rally wins a point and will serve next.
Matches are a best of three sets with the first two sets played to 21 points and the third set (If necessary) played to 15 points. A set is won by the first team to reach 21 points (or 15 points) with at least a two-point advantage.
In the event that the score is 20-20 (or 15-15), play continues until a team earns a two-point advantage with no limit on the final score of a set.
