Collection: Beach Volleyball 🏖️

Beach volleyball is a variant of indoor volleyball, which was invented in 1895 by William G. Morgan.[5] Beach volleyball most likely originated in 1915 on Waikiki Beach in Hawaii,[6] at the Outrigger Canoe Club. According to a 1978 interview with an Outrigger Canoe Club member, George David "Dad" Center put a net up there, and the first recorded game of beach volleyball took place.[7] In 1920, new jetties in Santa Monica, California created a large sandy area for public enjoyment. This planted the seed for beach volleyball development in that region. The first permanent nets began to appear, and people soon began playing recreational games on public parts of the beach and in private beach clubs. Eleven such beach clubs appeared in the Santa Monica area, beginning in late 1922. The first inter-club competitions were staged in 1924.
