Beach Volleyball was one of four optional sports that was voted into the sports program of the Commonwealth Games at the 2011 CGF General Assembly in St Kitts & Nevis. As an optional sport, it means that the host city can choose to include this sport if it wishes - there are other sports which must be on the program.
Beach Volleyball was held at the Commonwealth Games for the first time in 2018 at the Gold Coast. There was a total of twelve men's and twelve women's teams competing (48 athletes, at 2 per team). Beach Volleyball will again be included on the program in 2020.
Indoor volleyball is a recognized sport and has never been on the program.
