The formation history of beach volleyball (Part 3)

That debut match, Pablo Johnson and Bill Brothers still won, and the joy from the process that the quartet received was so great that the boys decided to play exactly two of the two. Gradually, the advantage of the new format was appreciated by other “beach people”.

And Johnson, seemingly a reward for his ingenuity, has become one of the best players in history. He performed with many partners at the highest level until he was 63 years old, but won one of the first major victories (in the championship of the sports club in Santa Monica) in 1931 with with Clarence Krabbe, another legend (like Kahanamoku) about swimming the world.

A year later, Krabbe won the Olympic gold medal at a distance of 400 meters of freedom, and became the author of a series of world records at six different distances, and not without success, he competed with Johnny Weissmuller. Great for the title of first actor among swimmers.

Beach volleyball is a sport between two teams with two members, with the original rules of traditional volleyball, and has been an Olympic sport since 1996.

Like a traditional indoor volleyball, the main task of an athlete’s game is to bring the ball through the net and finish it in the opposite court, while also blocking the same task from the opponent. Each team is allowed to touch the ball 3 times to get the ball through the court to attack.

A kick starts with a tee shot – taken behind the goal line, the ball goes over the net and is in the opponent’s court. The ball ends when the ball hits the court of a team; fly out of the court line or not pass the opponent’s court properly (put the ball under the net, the ball touches the limit, touch the net or pass the ball to the other side after 4 or more touches of the ball).

The team that took the previous goal kick will be allowed to serve. 4 players took turns teeing off during the match.

Beach volleyball was first known in southern California, USA, and has now been popular around the world.
