Thank you, thank you very much

We are saying it in an Elvis voice

Whoa, what a beach volleyball year it has been! Ups and downs, highs and lows! New teams, new heroes, new podium stepper-uppers, new winners…

But, one thing has remained constant through it all – our fans! 

We have the best fans, no, really we do, and it’s high time we did our bit to give you guys the shout out you deserve.

This year’s Swatch Major Series and the FIVB World Championships presented by A1 was a huge success. Thousands of beach volleyball fans flocked to Fort Lauderdale, Poreč, Gstaad, Vienna and Hamburg to watch their stars in action and experience all the action first hand. 

We’ve rounded up some pics which just help to illustrate why our fans are so awesome.
