Beach volleyball is usually played between two teams of two players, but it can be played by more.

The aim of the game is to stop the ball from landing on your side of the court whilst trying to ground the ball on your opponent’s side. Each side is allowed a maximum of three touches before the ball must be hit over the net.

Matches are decided by a team winning 2 sets, which are won by a team reaching 21 points with a 2-point advantage.
