Beach ParaVolley is a standing version of beach volleyball played with three-member teams. It works within the Paralympic classification system, which promotes the inclusivity of the sport. World ParaVolley, the international federation for Paralympic volleyball, is working with the International Paralympic Committee to add beach ParaVolley to the Paralympic Games by the 2028 Los Angeles Paralympics. The sport has been gaining popularity where teams have been competing regularly in Asia/Oceania since 2007.
