The size of a beach volleyball court
Court size: the size of the actual playing area is 16x8 m. To improve the pace of the game, the FIVB decided to reduce the dimensions of the court from the indoor size of 18x9 m to 16x8 m in 1999.
According to the FIVB, for official international competitions, the free area around the sidelines must be a minimum of 5 m and a maximum of 6 m. For recreational games, a minimum of 3 m is sufficient.
Where several courts are set up next to one another, there should be a distance of 4 m between the sidelines, so that several groups can play at the same time without obstructing each other.
There should be at least 7 m of free space above the court. The free space for official international competitions must be at least 12.5 m, measuring from the playing surface.
Net height: the official net height varies for men and women. The net is vertical above the centre line, with its upper edge at a height of 2.43 m for men and 2.24 m for women. The net height also varies for the following age categories:
16 years and below – boys and girls 2.24 m
14 years and below – boys and girls 2.12 m
12 years and below – boys and girls 2.00 m
Post distance: the distance between posts is 10 m (16x8 m) and 11 m (18x9 m). The posts must be placed on both sides at the same distance from the sideline. The permitted distance is 0.7-1.0 m from the sideline to the posts' padding.
When tensioned, the net is 8.5 m (16x8 m) or 9.5 m (18x9 m) long and 1 m (± 3 cm) wide.
