Cobra Volleyball Systems are for both the beach and for indoors! We have portable, easy to set up/take down net systems. They are durable with nets that stay tight and best of all, no guy wires to trip over!

So you would like to try beach volleyball and all you’ve play thus far is indoor volleyball. No problem! Beach volleyball, or sand volleyball as the NCAA is now calling it, is easy to learn. You can easily go from one to the other and back again taking skills you learn in one and using them in the other.

We’ve come up with a list of some of the differences.

Court Size

  • A beach volleyball is 16 x 8 meters
  • An indoor volleyball court is 18 x 9 meters


  • In beach volleyball you get three, but blocking doesn’t count on the first touch
  • Indoor volleyballs allows three touches. Period. Blocking counts as a touch

Match Length

  • Beach volleyball plays the best 3 of 5 or 2 out of 3 sets
  • Indoor volleyball plays the best 2 out of 3 sets

Number of players per side

  • Beach volleyball has 2 per team
  • Indoor volleyball has 6 per team


  • In beach volleyball the ball is 66-68 cm in circumference and weighs 260-280 g with a psi of 2.5- 3.2
  • In indoor volleyball the ball is 65-67 cm and weighs 260-280 g. the psi of indoor balls is 4.3-4.6 thus much harder

Either game means having a great time and getting in shape, so try the Cobra Outdoor Volleyball System or the Cobra Indoor Volleyball System (Existing Sleeves) and bump, set, spike away!
