The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel announced on Friday that effective in 2020, all competition beach volleyball courts will be required to have an official stand with a platform, podium ladder, or platform workstation for the match to count.
In addition, the announcement stated, “The platform either may be attached to a permanently installed net standard or may be free-standing. The platform should be adjustable in height to allow the referee’s eye position to be approximately 19 inches above the top of the net.”
As the official net system of the NCAA Volleyball Championships, Sports Imports beach volleyball equipment has been at the center of the Beach Championship since its inauguration in 2016, official stand included. The Sports Imports SV99 Beach Volleyball Official Stand attaches to the beach volleyball pole and meets all of the requirements of the new mandate, including a panel to adjust standing height. Official stand padding is also available and can even be customized with school colors and logos.
