What's the difference between the indoor & beach rules of volleyball?

By Tara B.

Rules are made not to be broken as many people say. Well there may be many different sets of rules for just one thing. For example, depending on what type of volleyball and your age, you'll have different rules.

I'll try to give you the most important rules for both indoor and outdoor volleyball, and the main ones that are usually the same. These are going to be specifically USA volleyball rules and who you're playing for may have slightly different rules.

Beach Volleyball Rules:

    May be played on sand or grass
  • The court size can 18m by 9m or 16m by 8m
  • At least 3m free zone around the whole court
  • Net should be at least 9.5m long and 1m wide
  • Height of net for women ranges from 2m to 2.24m
  • Height of net for men ranges from 2m to 2.43m
  • Can be played with 2,3,4 or 6 players
  • May wear jewelry, hats, sunglasses, etc
That is just to name a few and now I'm going to go on to Indoor volleyball now.

Indoor Volleyball Rules:

  • Played on a flat, horizontal surface
  • The court size is 18m by 9m
  • At least 2m free zone around the whole court
  • Net should be at least 9.5m long and 1m wide
  • Height of net for women ranges from 1.98m to 2.24m
  • Height of net for men ranges from 2.13m to 2.43m
  • Played with 6 players
  • Jewelry and hats are forbidden unless religious purposes
Well there are just a few rules that you may want to know going into playing volleyball. However, slime volleyball and crab orchard volleyball may have slightly different rules than what I stated above. But whatever rules of volleyball you decide on, you'll be sure to have fun!
