Whether as a leisure game or team sport: Volleyball connects and promotes team spirit. In addition, indoor and beach volleyball guarantee fun. The versatile ball sport, which was originally invented as an alternative to basketball, not only promotes your social contacts but also your physical condition and muscle building. To be able to score technically both indoors and on the beach, it is important to know the characteristics of the two balls in addition to the different rules of both disciplines. Volleyballs for the beach are with a circumference of 66 to 68 cm minimally larger than indoor models. Due to a lower air pressure as well as a rubber bladder inside, beach volleyballs are much softer and are therefore also suitable for beginners. Unlike the indoor volleyball, whose individual parts are glued together like a football, the beach volleyball is sewn together. Both types of ball come in many different colours and are made of either artificial leather or polyurethane. With a weight of 260 to 280 g, they have different pressure strengths of 0.30 to 0.325 kg/cm² for indoor and 0.175 to 0.225 kg/cm² for beach volleyball. For optimum ball control, you can rely not only on your team, but also on test marks (DVV, FIVB, AVB among others) from official sports associations with international manufacturers such as Mikasa or Wilson, which stand for durability and water resistance.
