Why play beach?

The advantage of playing beach volleyball is that a player must be able to perform every skill and all beach skills translate to the indoor game. To be successful at beach volleyball a player must be able to pass, set, hit, serve, and play defense.  It forces the players to develop all skills including their weaker skills. It also requires players to cover more of the court on serve receive and on defense and this teaches players to read the hitter and control the ball. Moving in the sand and jumping in the sand is much more difficult than indoor, so playing beach volleyball can also help you develop a stronger jump and make you quicker on defense because you’re under constant resistance in the sand.
