Stavanger to host Sitting Beach Volleyball tournament in conjunction with Continental Cup Final
News from the National Federations

Stavanger, Norway, June 15, 2016. A Sitting Beach Volleyball tournament will take place in Stavanger on June 25, i.e. right by the time the final stage of the 2014-2016 CEV Beach Volleyball Continental Cup will be reaching its climax. On that same day the women’s finals will be contested with the eventual winners securing a quota place for their country to the Rio 2016 Olympics.

The Sitting Beach Volleyball Tournament will be taking place for the first time since a similar competition was organised in 2009 when Stavanger played host to the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Championships.

As many as 300 invitations have been sent out by the Norwegian Volleyball Federation, with these being addressed to Volleyball clubs from all over the country, and the organisers are very much hoping that the competition will be running all day long on a court set up right next to the venue of the Continental Cup Final.

The first matches will start at 10am and depending on the interest shown by clubs and participants, these will continue until late in the afternoon / evening of Saturday, June 25. The ‘ordinary’ Sitting Beach Volleyball rules will be applied with the only exception being that the competition will be played 4x4, and mixed teams will be allowed to enter the tournament as well.  



All players participating in the event will receive an official t-shirt as well as a ticket to witness the CEV Beach Volleyball Continental Cup finals on Saturday and Sunday, where a good share of Europe’s Beach Volleyball elite will be chasing the fulfilment of their Olympic dream. Each of the players on the winning team will also receive another memento, i.e. an official competition ball.

“On top of this, we have invited key personnel of the Norwegian Olympic and Paralympic Committee and of the Norwegian Confederation of Sports along with representatives of the sponsors and partners involved in the delivery of the Continental Cup Final in Stavanger,” said Audun Stensvik of the Norwegian Volleyball Federation. “We very much hope this will provide further exposure to our event and we look forward to a day filled up with emotions so that everyone will leave Stavanger with lots of nice memories from their experience.”
