Hi Jack:

You will need 39 tons of sand for the volleyball court.

34' x 64' x 0.334' = 726.784 cubic feet / 27 = 26.918 cubic yards.

Damp sand (almost impossible to get dry sand from a pit) weighs 2850 pounds per loose cubic yard. 2850 / 2000 = 1.425.

26.918 cubic yards * 1.425 = 38.358 tons. Round it up to 39 tons.

Add a beach, a net, a ball and at least four players.
