About Beach Volleyball
Volleyball, which gave rise to the game of beach volleyball, was invented in 1895 by American William G. Morgan, the Physical Director of the Holyoke Y.M.C.A. Morgan combined elements of basketball, baseball, tennis and handball to create a game for students who wanted a new game with less physical contact than basketball.Marta Menegatti of Italy (Photo by Alexandre Schneider/Getty Images for FIVB)6x5x4x3x
Canada became the first country outside of the USA to take up volleyball in 1900 and was followed by Cuba in 1906, Japan in 1908, China in 1911, and France in 1915. Beach volleyball was subsequently born on the beaches of Waikiki Beach in Hawaii in 1915 before being taken up in Italy, Russia and India in 1917 and the rest of Europe in 1918 thanks to the American Expeditionary Forces posted in the continent due to the first World War.
The first official two-man beach volleyball tournament was held at State Beach, California in 1947, whilst the first circuit was organised on five beaches in the state: Santa Barbara, State, Corona del Mar, Laguna and San Diego in 1950.
It wasn't until 1974 that the first commercially sponsored tournament took place in San Diego, California. A total of $1,500 in prize money was offered and the tournament was won by Dennis Hare and Fred Zuelich.
The Federation International de Volleyball is the governing body responsible for all forms of volleyball on a global level. The organisation works closely with national federations and private enterprises with the aim of developing volleyball as a major world media and entertainment sport.
The FIVB was founded in 1947 when 14 countries (Belgium, Brazil, Czechoslovakia, Egypt, France, Netherlands, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Uruguay, USA and Yugoslavia) met in Paris to determined the future of the game.
The first international FIVB-sanctioned beach volleyball tournament was held on Ipanema Beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 1986, with $22,000 in prize money. Sinjin Smith and Randy Stoklos of USA won the tournament.
The maiden FIVB beach volleyball international circuit, named the World Series, came into being in 1989 with men’s tournaments in Brazil, Italy and Japan.
