The press operations officer for the AVP, Tim Simmons, has said that the Beach Volleyball Database has had a major impact on the sport. Information that is now easily accessible through the website, used to take time consuming research through different sources. Now professional athletes have a chance to set long-term goals based on their long-term results in comparison to other professional beach volleyball players.[2]

Volleyball Magazine calls the website "a reliable source for entries and results."[3] The site also collaborates with the Fédération Internationale de Volleyball (FIVB) to provide tournament notes to the FIVB website.[4]
