Volleyball Court Construction
What is Volleyball?
Volleyball is a team sport in which two teams of six players are separated by a net. Each team tries to score points by grounding a ball on the other team's court.
The volleyball court itself is 18m (59 ft) long and 9m (29.5 ft) wide. It is divided by a net set at varying heights depending upon the players sex age etc.
A line 3m (10ft) from the net is considered the "attack line". This line divides the court into "back row" and "front row" areas.

There is more to building a true sand Volleyball court than just going to the builders merchants, picking up bags of sand and setting up a net!
With a sand Volleyball court, quality is paramount as there are not many players who are prepared to play in clouds of dust or when they fall are subject to scratches and cuts!
In summary, a good beach Volleyball court starts and ends with the type of sand used. If you want beach volleyball sand you should typically not use golf course bunker sand or washed masonry sand. You want a blend of ideal particle sizes with low dust.
Types of Sand
Simply, the playing area should be level and consist of good quality sand to a thickness which prevents players from contacting the underlying surface.
The cost is typically more than Masonry Sand since process are required that ensure that a quality sand base is used which has undergone procedures to ensure that the dust is taken out of the sand and that all of the small pebbles and other angular rocks that scrape up your skin are also removed.
This mechanically screening out of the small rocks and pebbles is essential, allowing us to ensure that you have a surface fit for purpose.
Poles supporting the volleyball net should be made of stainless steel, anodized aluminum, galvanized steel, treated wood (6 x 6's or larger are preferred with sanded edges. It is also sensible to consider padding the poles to protect players using your court and to give your court that cosmetic professional look. Poles should be approximately 10.5-16 feet long and cemented into a concrete footing measuring at least 1 foot in diameter and 3 feet deep.
Official outdoor nets measure 32 feet long by 39 inches tall.
Mor-Sports recommend that the boundary lines be made of brightly colored tape or webbing.
We recommend that tradititonal "ropes" are avoided if possible as they can and do leave burns if you contact them accidentally.
A purpose designed, thick webbing is what is recommended and what the professionals use.
