This study has been carried out to analyze the concept, the development of beach volleyball in Korea. After an objective description through inter-subjective discussion based on literature review, the following conclusions have been retrieved. First, Beach volleyball, which was played on the beaches of the U.S. resort area, spread around the coastal areas of Europe and South America, and later launched the CBVA in 1962 and the AVP in 1983. Adopted as an official Olympic sport from the 1996 Games, it established its status as an international sport. Second, beach volleyball in Korea was introduced around the 1990s and has spread to expand the base of volleyball as an indoor volleyball training or as a sport for all. Since the foundation of the Korea Beach Volleyball Federation in 1990, it has been expected to expand the base of beach volleyball by holding various international and domestic competitions, but, so far it is still in its infancy.
