FIVB World Tour
The FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour (known between 2003 and 2012 as the FIVB Beach Volleyball Swatch World Tour for sponsorship reasons) is the worldwide professional beach volleyball tour for both men and women organized by the Fédération Internationale de Volleyball (FIVB). The World Tour was introduced for men in 1989 while the women first competed in 1992.
King of the Court
In the King of the Court format five international teams play against each other. There is a winner’s side on the court and a challenge side and each rally will start with a service from the team at the challenge side. If the team on the winner’s side wins the rally, they will stay on the winner’s side and get one point. If the team on the challenge side wins the rally, they’ll go to the winner’s side while the other team will leave the court and wait for their turn to serve again.
