Beach volleyball is played two against two on the sand. The beach volleyball players hit the ball with their hands over the net and try to protect their own field.


Special Olympics feature:

In contrast to the rules of the Fédération Internationale de Volleyball, our beach volleyball teams consist of four people instead of two, with two athletes* and 2 Unified partners each.
