Uniform change for all beach volleyball events

Female athletes in all FIVB beach volleyball competitions and the Olympic Games will have the option of wearing shorts and top to respect custom and/or religious beliefs
Lausanne, Switzerland, March 18, 2012 – The FIVB Board of Administration approved a key change to women’s beach volleyball uniforms with immediate effect at its three day meeting in Lausanne, Switzerland on Sunday.

The Board approved to apply the modified women’s uniform rule - which was implemented for the Continental Cup - for all beach volleyball tournaments, including the Olympic Games. This is to respect the custom and/or religious beliefs.

Previously there were two uniform choices for female players, a one-piece bathing suit or a bikini with a maximum side width of 7cm while full body suits could also be used under the bikini in cold weather. Now, there are three extra choices. Players can wear shorts of a maximum length of 3cm above the knee with sleeved or sleeveless tops or a full body suit.
