For the 2007 AVP Pro Beach Volleyball Tour, the following rules will be used:

  • Each match will be a best of three rally-scoring sets.
  • The first two sets are played to 21 points.
  • The third set is played to 15 points.
  • Teams must have a two-point advantage to win a set and there will be no caps used.
  • There are two (2) timeouts per set with a duration of 30 seconds each.
  • Only one (1) injury timeout per player per match is allowed.
  • A side change will occur every seven (7) points in the first two sets and every five (5) points in the third set. The side changes will be direct without delay.
  • Time between sets will be one (1) minute.
  • Court dimensions are 8-meters (26-feet, 3-inches) by 8-meters per side.
  • In 2001, the AVP approved the implementation of having a let serve be "in play." This means, if a server's ball hits the net and falls into the receiving team's space, the ball is in play.
