Beach Volleyball is a sport played by two teams of two players each on a sand court divided by a net.
The object of the game is to send the ball over the net in order to ground it on the opponent's court, and to prevent the same effort by the opponent.
The team has maximum three hits for returning the ball (including the block touch).
The ball is put in play with a service: hit by the server over the net to the opponents.
The rally continues until the ball is grounded on the playing court, goes “out” or a team fails to return it properly.
In Beach Volleyball, the team winning a rally scores a point (Rally Point System). When the receiving team wins a rally, it gains a point and the right to serve.
The serving player must be alternated every time this occurs.
The match is won by the team that wins two sets.
In the case of a 1-1 tie, the deciding set (the 3rd) is played to 15 points.
A set (except the deciding 3rd set) is won by the team that first scores 21 points.
