2 v 2 Sand Volleyball Tournament

ACTIVITY

The objective in sand volleyball is for a player to hit the ball over the net such that it lands within the opponent’s playing area, or is not legally returned to his/her own playing area. Players can make contact with the ball using any part of their body, except on the serve, which must be hit with only the hand. Each team is allowed a maximum of three hits to return the ball to the opponent’s side of the court. Each time a player touches the ball it counts as one contact for the team. A player is not allowed to make contact with the ball two consecutive times, unless s/he blocks the ball at the net; if a block occurs, the blocker may hit the ball again after his/her attempted block.
