Two weeks of international beach volleyball brought 29,000 people to Blackpool and put £12.5million in the local economy according to an independent economic impact assessment. From delivering the UK’s first FIVB International tournament in 2007 to our European Championship Tour English Masters and Swatch FIVB Junior World Championships in 2009, Beach Volleyball UK Ltd has confirmed its position as the only UK company with professional volleyball people experienced in planning and managing all aspects of World Class tournaments.
We are now seeking sponsors to join us in building the British audience for the fastest growing Olympic sport.
With British Beach Volleyball taking centre stage on Horse Guards Parade at the London Olympics in 2012, it is already attracting growing interest here in the UK. Beach volleyball has a huge following in the rest of the world.
The FIVB World Tour visits 19 cities in 16 host countries and attracts more than 600,000 spectators. Prize money stands at $9million and the tournaments are televised worldwide reaching an estimated 620 million households.
Check out the movie on this page to see what BVUK’s plans for womens and mens Beach Volleyball could have for England. If the UK is to put up a winning performance in 2012, we must raise it’s profile here and help its governing bodies bring our up-and-coming players to World Tour standard.
