Hi, Does anyone know how far from the sidelines net support poles (4 x 6 PT
lumber) need to be?

Approximately 2' away from the sideline is normal.  Be sure to check
out the net you'll be using to make sure it'll work for the width you
select.  

The USAV rules state the net body should be 32' long while the court
(USAV at least) is 29' 6" wide.  This leaves you with 2'6" of width in
excess of the court.  On each side then, you'd have about 1'3" of net
*** over the sideline, plus a usual 6-9" of exposed top cable gets
your standards about 2 feet from the sideline.

If you're building a sand court, I have some info linked from my site
that may be of use to you with respect to construction tips.

That would that be 2' away from the sidelines on the regulation 9x9 court.

If you wish to play doubles on an FIVB regulation court after your six man
game, you need to dig up and move the poles in so that they will be about 2'
outside the 8 meter wide court.  LOL

Heh, you wouldn't want to do that! You don't find 1 meter shorter nets
from the shop anyway... It's better to let the poles stay and move antennas.
Looks funny but that's not the biggest problem playing on 8x8 :-(

We're just about to start summer season and when the weather warms up a bit
we'll start playing beach outdoors. For those of you already out there on
the beach, what difference do the 8x8 rules make to playing?
