  • Service contact must be made with hand or arm ONLY
  • Server can serve anywhere behind the end line & between sidelines.
  • The ball can hit the net on the serve.
  • No blocking serves

Ball Interference

  • If a ball or enters your court during a rally you can re-serve the point

Playing the Ball

  • The ball can be played by any part of the body (except when serving)

Receiving Serve

  • A player may not volley a serve in any division of beach volleyball. Any play that is not a bump and not a volley (when you play the ball with your hands but not volley) must be with your hands together and made in one motion *only in Recreational 6s can you volley on serve receive.
  • NOTE: Once the ball is in play (after the serve), you may volley the first, second or third hit.

Ball In or Out

  •  If the ball hits the line it is in. If the line moves unintentionally, and the ball does not hit the line, the ball is out.

Ball Contact

  • Participants may play the ball off any part of their body (except when serving the ball)

Setting/Volleying

  • Volleys are when you contact the ball at or above the face level, not holding it too long
  • Official volleyball rules state that double contacts and lifts are illegal (you should use the division skill level as a guide to apply the rules and recreational divisions should be the least strict rules and elite division should be the most strictly adhered to)

Volleying Across the Net

  • When volleying the ball over the net, the shoulders of the player volleying must be facing the direction of the intended target (facing one direction and volleying in another, is a fault)
  • A ball that drifts over the net when setting is not a fault.
  • If a ball is affected by the weather, there is no violation.

Fair Ball - Over the Plane of the Net

  •  If any part of the ball is over the net it is fair game for either side to play but once it crosses the plane completely only that side is able to play it. That means that you cannot set your tall player over the net and they reach over to the opponents side of the net and play it.

New! Contacting the Net and Crossing under the Net

  •  Players CAN touch the net with exception of the top tape. Touching the top tape is a violation, and we ask that you call your violation immediately, to stop play.
  • There is no centerline violation in beach volleyball. A player may cross under the net without violation and resume play, but may not:
  • Touch anyone on the other team
  • Interfere with them playing the ball
  • Make contact with the net

People participate for exercise, fun & competition but everyone has to go to work tomorrow so remember that all teams should play with those thoughts in mind and maintain a high level of sportsmanship.
