Beach volleyball is a team sport with two teams of two players playing on a sand court. The objective of the game is to send the ball over the net on the ground of the other team. The rules are quite the same as in indoor volleyball but still with the fundamental differences. In beach volleyball are two players in one team instead of six players. A team is allowed up to three touches to return the ball across the net to the other team. The ball is put into the game by the serve. The server steps behind the line at the back of the court and hit the ball with a strong serve and not crossing the line. The beach court is slightly smaller than indoor court, but the biggest difference is in sand court instead of hard court as in indoor volleyball. Sand ground is more difficult for players to move and jump.
