About Beach Volleyball

Beginning in the 1920s, traditional six-player volleyball was contested on the beaches of southern California, and in 1930 the doubles format was “invented” when four players decided to split up and play while waiting for the others to show up.  Beach volleyball has grown in popularity to a point where it was added to the Olympic program in 1996.  The sport was introduced as a Deaflympic sport during the 2005 games in Melbourne, Australia.

Established in 1981, USA Deaf Volleyball (USADVB) is committed to the development of beach volleyball players. National teams represent the US in international deaf beach volleyball championships and at the Deaflympics.
