In 1920, construction of new jetties in Santa Monica, California created a large sandy area for public enjoyment, planting the seed for beach volleyball development in that region. 11 such beach clubs appeared in the Santa Monica area, beginning in late 1922. Most of these early beach volleyball matches were played with teams of at least six players per side, much like indoor volleyball. The concept of the modern two-man beach volleyball game, however, is credited to Paul "Pablo" Johnson, an indoor player. In the summer of 1930, while waiting for players to show up for a six-man game, Johnson decided to try playing with only the four people present. By the 1940s, doubles tournaments were being played on the beaches of Santa Monica for trophies. wikipedia.org #America #Beach #beach_volley #beach_volleyball #California #Californian #desporto #esporte #Estados_Unidos #Los_Angeles #Los_Angeles_County #praia #Santa_Monica_Beach #Santa_Monica_LA #sport #United_States #United_States_of_America #USA #volei #volei_de_praia #voleibol #voley #volley #volleyball
