Beach Volleyball (Beach Volley), is a sport of the Olympic tema played in the sand. Born as the vol game variation, from simple recreation on the beaches has evolved to become professional sport in the various countries of the world. Two teams of two players each collide on a sand court divided by a net.
As in volleyball, the object of the game is to send the ball over the net to make it fall in the opposing camp trying to oppose the same goal of the opponents. Each team has three touches available, consisting of the wall touch, unlike volleyball. The ball is put in play with a service, or a shot of the direct servant over the net to the opponent’s court. The exchange continues until the ball touches the ground in the field, off the field (out), or a team fails in an attempt to attack.
The team that wins the rally scores a point (Rally Point System). If it is the team that gets to win the exchange, in addition to the point earns the right to the service. The service player has to change every time there is this combination.
