Standing Beach Volleyball is played on sand with much the same rules and conditions as able-bodied Beach Volleyball. There are two small differences:
The team is comprised of three players; and
There are special rules relating to time-outs for repair of prostheses.
Standing Beach Volleyball is played under the same standards as able-bodied Volleyball played with net and court size as per Olympic Volleyball.
Players are classified according to the degree of disability (A, B or C with the latter having most disability). There is a maximum of one A class player and a minimum of one C class player on the court.
