Fourth beach volleyball age-group tournament added to calendar

 
U19 world champ Eduarda Santos Lisboa will have the chance to win another age-group medal in 2014

Lausanne, Switzerland, January 31, 2014 – A year on from the introduction of the FIVB Beach Volleyball U23 World Championships, the FIVB is delighted to continue the growth of the age-group tournaments in 2014 by organising a World Championships for the U17 age-group.

The inaugural FIVB Beach Volleyball U17 World Championships will take place in Bahai de Banderas in Mexico from July 15 to 20 and means even more young players will get the chance to compete at international level. 

“We are delighted to be able to organise a World Championships for the U17 age-group,” FIVB President Dr Ary. S. Graça F° said. “We want to give as many young players the chance to experience international competition because it is vital to their development as beach volleyball players.

“It also means another country can have the chance to organise an FIVB tournament and learn and understand what is required to host an FIVB age-group World Championships and how the hosting federation can use the tournament to spread the popularity of the sport in their country and region.”

Myslowice in Poland will again organise the FIVB Beach Volleyball U23 World Championships after the successful hosting of the inaugural event in 2013. The tournament in south-east Poland will take place from June 10 to 15. 

It is a similar story for the Portuguese city Oporto, who will repeat their hosting of the 2013 FIVB Beach Volleyball U19 World Championships from July 29 to August 3. 

The Cypriot resort Larnaca will host the FIVB Beach Volleyball U21 World Championships, with the event set to take place from July 22 to 27. 

Young beach volleyball players will also have the chance to chase Youth Olympic gold at the second edition of the Youth Olympic Games, Nanjing 2014, which take place from August 16 to 28, 2014  the first time beach volleyball has featured in the sporting line-up.
