It's thought that beach volleyball originated about 100 years ago in Waikiki, Hawaii. In the early days of the sport, teams played with six players a side like in indoor volleyball. It began to gain popularity in the 1980s and it was added to the Olympics in 1996. Nowadays, professional matches consist of two players per side.
