We love it when beach volleyball makes history. And that’s why we’re excited for this year’s Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia.

The Commonwealth Games is the second-biggest multi-sport event in the world behind the Olympics, and beach volleyball will feature for the first time in the 88-year history of the tournament. What’s more, some of the stars of the Beach Volleyball Major Series will be there too.

Not only that, so will we – giving you daily updates and insights into the seven-day competition which kicks off on Friday, April 6 at Coolangatta Beach.

In total 12 teams per gender will compete for the medals. Four teams will be split into three pools, before eight teams advance to the quarterfinals. The tournament medal matches take place on the afternoon and evening of Thursday, April 12.
