Sand Volleyball


  • Each game is played to 15 points. The leading team must win by 2 points.
  • We will play the best 2 out of 3 games or within a one-hour time limit.
  • The serving side can only score points.
  • Each team must consist of 7-10 players with at least one women for every 2 men.
  • Rotation is clockwise. Rotations will occur after each sideout. A sideout occurs when the team without possession of the ball gains possession.
  •  Immediately following a rotation, the player in the right back position will serve the ball.
  •  If the serve touches the net it is a service fault and results in a side out.
  • Once served, the ball may only be touched 3 times per side. A player may never touch it twice in succession unless one touch is a block.
  •  It is illegal to hold or throw the ball during play. However, tips are allowed. The referees will distinguish these.
  •  Any ball landing on the edge of the sand volleyball court is considered "in."
  • It is illegal to touch the net, reach over the net, or let body parts under the net.
  • The point system for post tournament play:
    • 4 = win
    • 2 = loss
    • 1 = forfeit
    • 0 = no show
