Beach volleyball is a best-of-three set contest unlike indoor volleyball where matches can go on till five sets. The first two sets are played until one team reaches 21 points - as opposed to 25 in the indoor version for its first four sets - and the third and final deciding set, if required, is played to 15 points.
In most sports, men's and women's competitions are governed by the same rules and regulations. In volleyball, however, a specific difference is the height of the net at 2.24 m in women's competitions and 2.43 m in men's competitions ( F. I. V. B., 2012 ).

Its main differences from regular volleyball are that the ball can be caught before passing on to a team-mate or over the net, and each pass or serve is a throw rather than a hit. While most other volleyball rules apply, variations on the numbers of players per team and the numbers of 'catches' per side are common, and players holding the ball are sometimes allowed a limited number of steps.

Well the biggest difference there is between them is that there is a big net right in the middle of the court that separates both teams during a volleyball match. And another difference is that a single team must contain seven players during handball ,while in volleyball a team must contain of six players.
