Although you can play water volleyball with a variety of different types of balls, from beach balls to basketballs, and soccer balls to volleyballs, your best bet is to get a purpose built water volleyball ball. Most other types of balls (for example, soccer balls and traditional indoor volleyballs) are not waterproof and will become saturated with water over time.

A good water volleyball is always waterproof. It will be able to withstand the rigors of chlorinated pool water or lake water. Most balls are coated with vinyl or plastic to make them waterproof. Some water volleyball balls have a soft coating on the outside to make the ball easier to grip and less painful when the ball hits bare skin (like an open palm or someone unlucky enough to get hit with a spiked ball). Water volleyballs are often brightly colored to make them easier to see in the water.

Water volleyball balls are usually larger and heavier than traditional volleyball balls, which makes them easier to keep afloat in the water. The extra weight also makes them more challenging to hit, which can make for more exciting games. Water volleyball balls are typically inflated to a lower pressure than regular volleyballs, which makes them softer and easier to grip.

Water volleyball is a fun and challenging game that can be played by people of all ages and skill levels. It is a great way to stay cool in the summer heat and can be a great workout. If you are looking for a new and exciting game to play in the water, consider water volleyball.
