Knee injuries are very frequent in Volleyball. One reason for a higher risk of knee injuries may is the frequent one footed landings. So, the aim of this study is to record the different landing techniques after airborne actions in professional beach volleyball and to compare the results to indoor volleyball. The results should help coaches and physiotherapists to create appropriate training and rehabilitation programs after knee injuries. 20 beach volleyball games, 10 women and 10 men games were analyzed. All in all 3128 landings of 46 players were analyzed. Most games were filmed at the BVB-Grandslam 2011 in Klagenfurt, the rest at other venues of the Beachvolleyball World Tour. The landing technique was classified into both feetas well as right and left foot landing. The (beach) volleyball skills service, set, attack and block were compared with regard to sex, technique and court position. The service actions were split up into the Jump Float and the Jump Spike-Serve and the attacks were divided into Shot and Spike attack.To record the court position, the beach volleyball field was split in two halfs, the right and left.In men beach volleyball, differences based on field position were detected in attack and block but not in set actions. The technique of serve and attack affected the landing technique. Significant differences to indoor volleyball were observed in service, set, attack and block.In women beach volleyball, no differences based on field position were detected. The technique of serve and attack affected the landing technique. Significant differences to indoor volleyball were observed in block and set actions but not in attack and serve actions.Comparing the results of men and women in beach volleyball, differences were detected in block actions but not in attack, serve and set.
