It is for the second time, that beach Volleyball will make an official appearance at the 2022 Birmingham Commonwealth Games, and also for the third time in the 2026 Games. Australia at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games clinched the title in the men’s beach ball event, where the women’s team from Canada bagged a gold medal in the women’s tournament.

Beach Volleyball at the 2022 Commonwealth Games

Beach Volleyball is a sports program competed on the beach, where teams comprising men and women have to showcase their skills to topple the opponent in this wildly competitive tournament. A team of a total of twelve men’s and twelve women’s players (a total of 48 players) competes in a beach ball tournament.

Two teams will battle against each other on the beach sand, serving the ball over the net, where each team had to hit a ball maximum of three times on one side over the net before being directed back.

The game is all about teams executing the ball back and forth across the net until one team wins the rally. If the opponent fails to return the ball, commits a fault, or if the ball lands in the opponent’s court, the other team gains the points and finally leads the tally. The winning team serves the next ball at each rally.

There are two sets of matches played between two teams of 21 points and if there is a tie, the third set of 15 points is played to announce the winner. A team reaching the first set of 21 points or (15 points) earlier is claimed as the winning team with at least a two-point advantage.

If two teams held a score of 20-20 or 15-15, then the play is continued until one team earns an advantage of two-point with no limit on the final score of the set.
