Beach Volley betting
Beach volleyball is played on sand resulting in the movements being slower and the vertical jump height becoming shorter. The sand can be difficult, and as it continually moves under players' feet, it causes fatigue.
Indoor volleyball is a power game with heavier balls. The balls tend to move faster and can be hit harder. Beach volleyballs are softer, lighter and a little larger than indoor balls. The lighter weight allows them to float more in the air, allowing good players to use the weather to their advantage.

The creation of the Beach Pro Tour will introduce a new look for beach volleyball competitions around the world. The Beach Volleyball season will start in Rio in March and will run until the end of November in Sydney. The final event of the season will bring together the top 10 teams.
The most notable change is the elimination of the five-star system, which has been replaced by a three-tier circuit - Elite 16, Challenge and Futures, all of which are aptly named to represent their respective levels of play.
The Elite 16 features the top 16 teams in the world based on points. There are no qualifiers for Elite 16, and how teams will move from the challenger level to Elite 16 remains to be seen. But one thing is clear: starting the year in Elite 16 will be a valuable advantage. The format of the competition involves four pools of four which will give culminate in a single-elimination final phase.
The Challenge group will be much more crowded as it will be composed of 32 teams. Twenty-four teams of men and women will participate in a group phase with qualifications. Finally, the Futures group will be composed of mainly local young teams to develop a sporting sense of beach volleyball in participating countries.
