• New stops on this year's calendar are the double gender event in Canada (Québec) and the first event in Morocco (Agadir), after a five year absence from Africa.
• The 2011 FIVB Beach Volleyball Swatch World Championships will be played in Rome, Italy beginning June 13 and concluding on June 19. This is the first time that Italy has hosted the World Championships.
• The tour returns to Beijing, the scene of the 2008 Olympic Games after two year's absence, with a double gender Grand Slam, the first ever held in Asia.
