Why doesn’t sand stick to beach volleyball players??


 

Look closely at the picture above  What do you notice? Better yet, what don't you notice?
They are sprawled out in the sand, a position they find themselves in more than a dozen times per match. They're surrounded by their sport's playing surface and it's kicked up all around them. But look at one of the player's legs. Check out the other player's arms and take special notice of her feet. There's no sand anywhere.

How do beach volleyball players manage to avoid the billions of granules of sand that cover their sport's playing surface? Because it's not the same sand that gets between your toes when you go on vacation.
The sand used in competition is heavily regulated by the International Volleyball Federation. There are no pebbles or bits of shells. The shape ensures a smoother grain. The size is Goldilocks style: not too small or too big. Why doesn't it stick? Because it's designed not to.


Nothing is perfect, of course, so sand is bound to find its way in between articles of clothing and on the skin. That's why some athletes use a special towel to clean themselves during changeovers.
Sand that doesn't stick. It sounds glorious.
