Volleyball approves modified uniform for women

28 Mar 2012
Lausanne, Switzerland: The FIVB Board of Administration approved a key change to women’s beach volleyball uniforms with immediate effect at its three-day meeting in Lausanne, Switzerland, on Sunday. The International Volleyball Federation Board approved to apply the modified women’s uniform rule - which was implemented for the Continental Cup - for all beach volleyball tournaments, including the Olympic Games. This is to respect the custom and/or religious beliefs.

Previously there were two uniform choices for female players, a one-piece body suit or a bikini with a maximum side width of 7cm. Now there are two extra choices. Players can wear shorts of a maximum length of 3cm above the knee and sleeved or sleeveless tops.
