Beach Para Volley

What is Beach ParaVolley

If you don't know much about Beach ParaVolley, it is beach volleyball played with three team members with a physical impairment.

In fact, World ParaVolley, the international federation for Paralympic volleyball, is working to add Beach ParaVolley to the

Paralympic Games by the 2028 Los Angeles Paralympics!


Do you classify?

Athletes with a permanent physical injury or disability that affects movement of one or more limbs, such as an amputation, cerebral palsy, nerve injury, or significant injury to muscles or joints.

The Beach ParaVolley classification system is based on the loss of locomotor function as it applies to volleyball.

This covers amputees (or congenital abnormalities like amputees) as well other musculoskeletal injuries/conditions, and many neurological conditions.

Examples of types of impairments with different conditions that may be eligible to play ParaVolley disciplines include:

  • Impaired muscle power – e.g. following nerve injury
  • Impaired passive range of movement
  • Limb deficiency – e.g. amputations or congenital abnormalities
  • Leg length difference
  • Hypertonia/Ataxia/Athetosis
