PRESS RELEASE
2011 FIVB Beach Volleyball Swatch World Tour Season leaders as of Sunday, October 9, 2011

Richard Schuil, left, and Reinder Nummerdor of the Netherlands won the season-ending event in Agadir for the Men's FIVB Beach Volleyball Swatch World Tour to keep the European winning streak alive of at least one gold medal per year at eight years.
     
 

Lausanne, Switzerland, October 9, 2011—The 14th and final men’s event on the 2011 FIVB Beach Volleyball Swatch World Tour was played this past week at the $190,000 Morocco Open at Rue de la Plage, Corniche, Agadir, Morocco. Dutch duo Reinder Nummerdor and Richard Schuil won their first event of 2011 and seventh career gold medal together in an all European final, defeating Germans Julius Brink and Jonas Reckermann. 

The victory kept Europe’s streak of eight straight seasons with at least one men’s team winning on the FIVB Swatch World Tour, dating back to 2004.  The Europeans had placed teams in 12 of the 14 final fours this season, including three teams in Beijing, Stavanger, and The Hague without a victory until this weekend.  This was also the seventh time this season that four different countries competed in the men’s semifinals matching the 2010 season and just behind 2008 when it happened eight times in 21 events.  The World Tour finishes up the 2011 season with a women’s only event in Phuket, Thailand from November 1-6.

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.
• Brazil’s Alison Cerutti/Emanuel Rego won the men’s Tour Championship based on their 10 best finishes from the 2011 season.
