Beach Shorts: The week in the sands of the world
Hello again, beach volleyball fans! How did your week go? The weekend is right around the corner and that means it’s time for Beach Shorts. We are about to enter what are supposed to be a couple of slow beach volleyball days, with nothing more than the King of Court series happening, but there are some off-the-court news we really want to share with you!
Join us and find out more about them!
Bring on 2019!
We usually add the 'in case you missed it' links at the end of Beach Shorts, however this week, if you did indeed miss it, then here's the news: we released the 2019 calendar earlier on Thursday. With the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championships taking center stage, we will also be heading back to Fort Lauderdale, Gstaad and Vienna next year. What's more the international season is full of tournaments around the globe. Click here for a full run down of events next year!
Check out where we're heading in 2019 👀 🇺🇸🇩🇪🇨🇭🇦🇹 @FIVBBeach @FIVBVolleyball @USAVBeach @Volley_Austria @swissvolley @TeamGER_Volley https://t.co/jGUp7cJAHk

Beach volleyball celebrates Olympic anniversary
This Friday is a meaningful date for beach volleyball as the sport celebrates the 25th anniversary of its inclusion in the Olympic program. It was on September 21, 1993 that the International Olympic Committee (IOC) officially approved the sport, which would make its Olympic debut three years later, in the Atlanta Games.
Social Media: A setting lesson by Lili
There are several different ways you can accurately set a volleyball and Brazilian Lili Maestrini added another option to the list. As you could expect, it’s very…well...Brazilian!
