CYPRUS2009 Results

Because of the many difficulties of playing outdoors, such as the sand, the sun and the wind, Beach Volleyball players must have outstanding ball skills and court speed. Partners must be well matched or opponents will win easy points by exploiting the weaker player.

Volleyball has now reached great heights of popularity in the United States and Brazil, largely thanks to the discipline of Beach Volleyball.

The Beach Volleyball phenomenon, although hugely visible, is still just in its infancy. From the first FIVB World Tour event just over ten years ago, to the overwhelming spectator and television success of 'Beach' at the Atlanta 1996, Sydney 2000 and Athens 2004 Olympic Games, Beach Volleyball has opened up Volleyball to a completely new market.

In beach volleyball, matches are played best of three sets using the rally point system. The first two sets are played to 21 points, with the final tie-breaker set being played to 15 points. A team must win a set by two points. There is no ceiling, so a set continues until one of the teams gains a two-point advantage.
