Today, sand courts located in cities are supporting the sport, which is one of the most sought after.
The sport comes from traditional indoor volleyball. Its origins are known to have originated on the beaches of Santa Monica in the United States.
In Brazil, it arrived in the 50s in Copacabana, RJ. In general, contact with the sport is initiated in childhood, in schools in classrooms that are in the curriculum, which makes beach volleyball easier and more attractive for students of all ages.

Today, training in sand is one way to improve results, this effect reduces injuries, tone muscles and increases calorie expenditure.
