PRESS RELEASE
2011 FIVB Beach Volleyball Swatch World Tour Season Update

Brazil's Larissa Franca, left, and Juliana Felisberta Silva have moved closer to the 2011 FIVB Beach Volleyball Swatch World Tour season championship after winning their sixth gold medal of the year Sunday at the Hague, Netherlands.
     
 

Lausanne, Switzerland, August 28, 2011 - The 14th women’s and 13th men’s events on the 2011 FIVB Beach Volleyball Swatch World Tour and the las of 12 double gender events were played this past week at the $380,000 HP Beach Open-the Hague at Hommerson Beach Stadion in The Hague/Scheveningen, Netherlands.

In the women’s competition, Juliana Felisberta Silva and Larissa Franca of Brazil won for the sixth time this season and extended their record with their 42nd FIVB Swatch World Tour title together.  This marked the sixth time this year that four different countries were represented in the semifinals.  On the men’s side, Brazilians Pedro Cunha and Ricardo Santos won for the second time in the last three events, defeating Netherlands’ Reinder Nummerdor and Richard Schuil on their home soil.  The men also had four different countries compete in the semifinals, the sixth time that this has happened this year.  The Hague marked the third time in the 12 double gender events that the same country won both the men’s and women’s titles, with Brazil being that country all three times (also accomplished in Rome and Gstaad).  This week, Canada will host the 2011 FIVB Beach Volleyball Swatch Junior World Championships for players under 21 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, August 31-September 4.  The FIVB Swatch World Tour finishes up the 2011 season for the men in Agadir, Morocco from October 4-9 and in Phuket, Thailand from November 1-6 for the women.
2011 FIVB Beach Volleyball Swatch World Tour Highlights
• The 2011 FIVB Beach Volleyball Swatch World Tour circuit will visit 18 sites in 16 countries over an eight-month period.
• The 2011 calendar features 15 women's and 14 men's events within all five confederations plus one special 24-team single-gender women’s test event held August 9-14 at London’s Horse Guard’s Parade, the venue for the 2012 London Olympic Games. The 2011 FIVB Swatch World Tour is offering $7.64-million in prize money
• Twelve of the tournaments will be combined men's and women's events, including the World Championships and all six Grand Slam stops. Women's-only stops will be in China (Sanya), Poland (Myslowice), and Thailand (Phuket). Men's only stops will be in the Czech Republic (Prague) and Morocco (Agadir)
• New stops on this year's calendar are the double gender event in Canada (Québec) and the first event in Morocco (Agadir) (men), after a five year absence from Africa.
• The 2011 FIVB Beach Volleyball Swatch World Championships were played in Rome, Italy from June 13 through June 19. This is the first time that Italy has hosted the World Championships.
• The tour returned 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. In addition, the $3.6-million FIVB Beach Volleyball Swatch World Tour Grand Slam series will return to Norway (Stavanger), Switzerland (Gstaad), Russia (Moscow), Poland (Stare Jablonki), and Austria (Klagenfurt).
• Stavanger, Gstaad, and Klagenfurt have each staged eleven or more FIVB-sanctioned Beach Volleyball events. Each site has also hosted the FIVB Beach Volleyball Swatch World Championships (Klagenfurt in 2001, Gstaad in 2007 and Stavanger in 2009).
• Brazil has staged a FIVB Swatch World Tour event every year since the start of the International circuit for men in 1987 and women in 1992.
• China is staging three and Poland will present two FIVB Swatch World Tour stops in 2011.
• The men's calendar concludes with the new event in Morocco in early October while the women's tour finishes in Thailand the following month.
• The International Beach Volleyball calendar also features two other age-limit World Championships. Croatia will host the 2011 FIVB Beach Volleyball Youth World Championships, for players under the age of 19, June 21-26 in Umag. Canada will host the 2011 FIVB Beach Volleyball Swatch Junior World Championships for players under 21 in Halifax, Nova Scotia August 31-September 4. This will be the first time either country has hosted these events. The FIVB Swatch Youth World Championships in 2010 were held in Porto, Portugal before Turkey hosted the FIVB Swatch Junior World Championships in Alanya.
• IMG Sports Media continues to have the exclusive global distribution rights for the FIVB Beach Volleyball Swatch World Tour. In addition to match telecasts, IMG also produces a weekly FIVB Swatch World Tour highlight show.
• The FIVB Swatch World Tour will continue to exclusively use the Mikasa VLS300 ball.  It was introduced in 2009 in October and November at events in Sanya, China and Phuket, Thailand.
