Beach Basketball is a modified version of basketball, played on beaches. It was invented in the United States by Philip Bryant.Beach basketball is played in a circular court with no backboard on the goal and no out-of-bounds rule, with the ball movement to be done via passes or 2½ steps, as dribbling is next to impossible on sand. Beach basketball has become a very popular, widespread competitive sport. Fifteen Annual World Championships have been organized.
